A shuffling of feet. when can i politely take my leave?
without seeming rude, ungrateful,
without causing worry, offense?
“Are you resting enough?
How are you feeling?
Are you eating well?
Are you back to normal?”
i mumble something or other,
eager to get away from
the concerned glances that are shot my way.
But i guess
surprise, shock, evoke concern & sympathy
from those i chancely encounter.
I am fine.
