Day 14: Yes or No?

Here again comes
the request
I most dread.
Let’s try us again.

We’ve been here before.
Remember the signpost?
It’s the high school
make-up exam, only
question order is changed.

Remember the answers?
And the results?
I ended up
by myself each time
I went the Yes route.

So, no
let’s don’t try us again.
Let’s just spare me
the drama of us
forking, down the road
into you and me
once again.
