What’s Said, What’s Heard, What’s Meant, What’s Remembered

“That sucks.”

“What?”

“That poem.”

My poem?  “It doesn’t suck.”

“It’s just sad.”

That’s not what you said.  “It doesn’t suck!”

“No, it’s excellent.”

Then apologize.  “It doesn’t suck.”

“What’s behind the poem. It’s sad.”

“It doesn’t suck.”

“Just to clarify—that poem is insightful, penetrating. I think it will resonate with a lot of people, but the truth behind it sucks.”

That’s still not what you said.
