around you

there are always

people who want things


that they may not even

have articulated yet

but they will want from you

& all you can do

is to hold on

wait until their needs

have become clear

or you

have managed to extricate


from whichever drama

they have created

because to ask you

straight out

making demands

may result in a NO


they must engineer

create situations

in which

your only option is

to say yes

a grudging yes

or a frustrated ok maybe

in which case

they will have won
