Are You Listening?

Bartenders aren’t the only ones

to listen to our woes.

There’s barbers and beauticians,

doctor’s assistants; nurses too.

Actually just about anyone

who’ll listen

when we need them

will do…


Just think of the poor

guy on the train or plane

who gets stuck

next to Mr/Ms Wobegone.

How grand for them both,

or is it?


I guess

it all depends

on whether or not

we are fortunate enough

to pour out

our souls

to an empathetic person.
