A Thousand Times Yes

I said yes, I said yes, I said yes,I prayed a thousand times yes.And the no that was hanging over the buildingsFaded like the moon at dawn.When I was young I thought I was facingA very aware world ahead,I didn’t know it was going to beBeware of dogs instead.I said no, I said no, I said no,I said no a million times to no.But the yes that was in it’s last breathStill hovered in a room with a permanent flu.When I was young I didn’t knowThat one can only read life in braille,I was still struggling to catch life on it’s tail.I said why, I said why, I said why,I asked why for the billionth time.And my bone slowly lost it’s moistLike a leftover coke bottle on the street.Yes, this dry whiteness of a thing on the square,That’s my bone.It lets the wind pass over like the last tender fraud,Makes a little noise like old campaign billboard.I said yes, I said yes, I said yes,I prayed a thousand times yes.And the no that was hanging over faded.
