“Yes”

he asked me,
“Have I been wasting my time, with you?
the intent was clear
as was the expected response
but I failed
as I often do
and replied
“In the existential sense, yes,
all time is wasted.
Yet in the interpersonal sense,
time is only wasted
when not put to practical use.”
he stared, unimpressed
and I, for all my wit,
am still just an asshole
incapable of simple coexistence
