We could negotiate words,
barter. Our little version
of scrabble. I'll give you essential
if you give me fat.
I'll give you feeling
if you give me…zit
not zat. I don't care about zat!
Oh. And we can give each other hair.
That sounds fair.
Hey, we could build a whole lexicon
of verbiage that is verboten
we have no more words
Though maybe we'll figure out a way
out of option C (not talking).
