She Is Not OKAY Today

She squats  in our dirty kitchen and says,
“This is the longest day of my life.”
I look at her, see the sad expression
in her eyes, the crushed spirit manifests in
the aura of her. Then, she starts
telling a story how everything is blown
out of proportion. She can’t please
everyone. She can’t be the music that
every ear wants to hear. She is not
OKAY today.
