Straight to the point

What did you think of my latest poem, Babaloo?
Which one, Oolabab?
You know. The one you ‘liked’. What did you like about it?
You did that thing you do.
What thing? I wasn’t sure if it was too subtle or not.
Yeah, that’s it. Subtlety. It’s what you do.
You didn’t get it, did you?
No, not really.
You didn’t read it, did you?
