a thousand words for yes

If, as they say, education is the key, then I say
a girl needs to learn a thousand words for yes,
so that she might take them into her body
and make the world of them.

Something like this…

Yes I have an idea.
Yes listen.
Yes again.
Yes I know that it scares you, but you can trust me.
Yes this is hard, but worth it.
Yes this is scary, but good.
Yes I will think about it.
Yes that’s my decision.
Yes we will try that.
Yes I am worth it.
Yes I am worthy.
Yes I belong here.
Yes let’s try again.
Yes I am sure.
Yes this tangle has an answer.
Yes we will find it.
Yes let’s try something different.
Yes I understand what you’re saying.
Yes I can.
Yes I will.
Yes I remember.
Yes I’m listening.
Yes I am making it all up.
Yes it’s true.
Yes I know.
Yes follow me.
Yes I’ve got you.
Yes I see you.
Yes I understand.
Yes it’s confusing.
Yes it makes no sense.
Yes it’s stuck.
Yes we should change it.
Yes we can change it.
Yes let’s do.
