A Spool of Words

A little experiment, if you please.


. . .

He said, “I don’t want to talk to you,” but like a strange, needy girl,

I kept saying, “What? What?” into the phone until it died. Even with

a dead phone I can hold animated conversations for minutes,

just nodding and saying “Yes/No” at appropriate moments, a game

best played in public, with the right pause and responses it really looks

as though you are conversing with someone. An argument can even

ensue if you are not careful. No one will notice. Soon, not even you.
