cutting some slack

being loud when it’s supposed to be reserved

may send wrong signals to the rest of the world.

but sometimes, the extrovert in me

just needs to sit in a yard

with loved-ones

and eat and drink and laugh, loudly,

(at a distance, that is)

and feel the relief.

and when the neighbours look and

shake their heads

they may actually be right.

well, then this is my moment to be wrong

but feel better and more resilient

when it’s time to get back to business

and these rules

put in place to save so many

in our community.

so I ask to cut me some slack

in private spaces.

I’ll do my best to do the same.
