No matter what you ask of me right now, the answer will be, “no”. I don’t care how you ask. Syrupy sweet or angry and demanding. Doesn’t matter. “No.” Compound question or multiple choice. Still “no.” All yes or no questions will be answered in the negative, even if it’s the wrong answer.
“How are you feeling?” No. “What time is it?” No. “What did you have for dinner?” No. “Is the Earth round?” No.
Sometimes the only strength that I possess is in my words. Sometimes I don’t have the energy or strength to string my words together. Sometimes all I’ve got is “no”.
