140/365: The Safety of Confirmation

Ugh. Really?

I couldn't hear what you were saying anymore.
You listed questions.
I nodded yes or no.
We called this conversation.

Do you want water?
Are you sure you don't want ice?
Since when do you have water with a meal?
You can have milk if you want.
Is this glass okay?

We dug ourselves into
the safety of confirmation.
Yes? Yes. No? No. Yes? No.

Later,
in different rooms,
we calculated our tragedies.
