The Antagonist

It’s too difficult to say

But shouldn’t be difficult to say:

How do you know?

What makes you say so?

What’s so great about that?

Is that true?

That’s not my experience.

I don’t think so.

Not necessarily.

I’ve seen otherwise.

This is language’s heavy lifting.

Much easier a casual cuss to feign carelessness or

A pantomime that we’re impenetrable

Wayyyy more difficult, let’s say harder,

To say no, no, no

I object

I insist

I desist

I decline

I do not agree

I do not believe you

I do not believe that

I believe otherwise
