Scrabble Scrabble







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!

(Nor azo.)

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


between us.


Though maybe we'll figure out a way

out of option C (not talking).

Neologisms, maybe.

Or patience.
