How Are You?

How are you, dear
People ask.
They only see a
Cold clay mask.

Staring, peering,
At the face.
Dredging opens
A hiding place.

Scooping, dragging
The riverbed.
Repeating theme is
Always read.

Degree and value
Mental states.
Eyes are windows
that negate.

Linking be verbs
Stay the same.
She prefers her
Maiden name.

Doubting, query
Fine-grained earth layers

Research answers
Is the quest.
Will she ever
Pass the test?
