If You Don't Know What You Want by Lawrence S. Pertillar



How long have you been doing this? 

'What time is it? '

No, 
I mean in years! 

'What time is it? 
Do you have a second hand, 
On your watch? 
Should I include those...
Seconds! 
Now...
Do you want the time before, 
Or after my birth? '

Why can't you ever answer my questions directly? 

'I'm trying to! 
Do you want a response you want to hear.
Or the one I wish to give? '

Either way I wouldn't know.

'Than why ask the question? 
Don't accuse me of not being direct, 
If you don't know what you want.'

Why you gotta use logic? 

'As if you know the difference! '

Why do you want to insult me! 

'Now you are making requests.
Like I said...
You don't know what you want! '
