Please ask

By , New York, NY
can you hurry up?
can you just ask already?
can you just gather yourself from the heap
you are
on the floor
and steal some words
and put them in a sentence
and maybe a question
will be born
and I will
blush
and then
I will be happy
and I will think
of how nice it would be
and how it would be good
and we could be happy
and then I will say
no.
I will say I can’t
and you will ask
why?
and you will say
I thought you were happy
you smiled
and I will say
I am happy
but
I can’t
and you will say why can’t
you, why?
and I will say because
and you will say
because what?
and I will say
because you don’t like me
and you will say
yes
I do
that’s why I asked
and I will say
but you don’t
and then you will get angry
or you might get sad
and you will ask just one more time
why?
and I will say because
I like you
a lot
a lot – a lot
but so does
she.
and you will say
but I don’t like
her
and I will say
but you are supposed to
and then you will say
that it doesn’t
make sense
and I am making
you angry
and why did
you bother?
and I will say I am sorry.
but you love her.
