No

I say ‘no’; you say ‘yes’.
I say ‘not now’; you say ‘oh, yes’.
I say ‘wait’; you say ‘no’.
I see your mouth, I say ‘okay’.

I say ‘down’; you say ‘up’.
I say ‘no’; you say ‘yes’.
I say ‘but’; you say ‘up!’,
I see your eyes, I say ‘okay’.

I say ‘safe?’; you say ‘no’;
I say ‘but…’; you say ‘pussy’;
I say ‘as you say’; you say ‘yes!’.
I see your thighs, I say ‘o-kay’.

I say ‘wow’; you say ‘no’.
I say ‘yes’; you say ‘nooo’.
I say ‘yes!’; you say ‘enough’.
I hold your tummy, I say ‘for Christ’s sake no’.

I say ‘stay’; you say ‘no’;
I say ‘wait’; you say ‘have to go’;
I say ‘nonono’; you say ‘yes’;
I say ‘no!’; I watch you go.
