Adalie Hettie (05-24-1979 / Baton Rouge)
I won’t let you down
Like so many times before
Take it, my word if it’s worth it
There is nothing here between us
No connection, no role for you to play
Now swallow all your fine proposals
Because on steady knees I will decline
I can’t hide in your formation
This fixture is not a permanent pose
Your canvas does not call to me
My colors will not rely on you to expose
Now it’s time for you to go.
It’s that time.
You have to go.
