because y’know

wants the final word

those words to be the end

of discussion

argument debate

because y’know

& there is nothing

you can say

authority has spoken

because y’know

final words have been given

take them

& shut up

swallow them down


walk away

because y’know

there is some higher ground

though I’m looking

all I see is retreating feet

thin positions on shaky sands

& if I too walk away

don’t expect

I’ve taken all this in

your wannabe finality

because y’know

that you’ve said these things

don’t make it

necessarily so
