Circle one

May 12, 2014

When we were seven

we didn’t assume

and we didn’t bother

to guess.

We just passed a note

and all it said was

“Do you like me?  Yes or no.  Circle one.”

And we were

dreadfully honest

in our replies

because

life had not taught us

about diplomacy

or white lies

or that it is better

to be nice

than honest.

We kept things simple when we were seven.
