Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

There is a poem that I am trying to find. It's about how the government allocates only a certain number of words that people can use in the day. And it's about a lover who gestures throughout his day or avoids talking so that at the end of the day he can talk to his long distance lover on the phone and say "i love you" to her. But she's used all her words so he says it to silence. I have tried to search everything and I can't find it. Hopefully you guys are familiar with it.
