Therapy Human

(fable with a person in the part)


The people she is speaking with

Think that it’s a hoot

And knife-like insight:


My brother-in-law helps my sister

When they’re on an airplane

Because my sister hates to fly


He gets to know the people

Sitting nearby

He’s excellent at striking up conversations

Works at exchanging seats,

When necessary


At the airport, she

Refers to him as “my therapy human”

Since therapy animals are in vogue


But we can do this for each other,

And it’s good to say so
