Niceties

I communicate my thoughts, the minutiae of what I'm feeling. It's good to purge the system sometimes. Right now I'm feeling negative. I'm feeling cold. It's gray and raining outside. I have to walk through the rain and sit on a subway with angry people and walk through more streets filled with angry people. They push, they shove, they yell. But it's all okay, I tell myself. It's all fine. I'll just share my feelings with these people, and they'll understand. They'll comfort me. They'll say it's okay. They'll all say, Let's be friends. Let's all get along. Let's all be happy. That's what they'll say. I know it.
