shutterstock_214547947No is a favourite word

To end the endless conversation,

To shut the door on the salesman,

The panhandler,

The boyfriend,

The friend.

We say no to change,

And no to adventure;

No to love,

To faith,

To understanding,



Possibilities end

Before ever they begin.

No is a universe

Populated by one.
