Contradictory

There is always a road,
The sea, dark hair, dolor.

Always a question
Bigger than itself—

They say you’re leaving Monday
Why can’t you leave on Tuesday?     {excerpt from Duende by Tracy K. Smith}



There is always a road,
The sea, dark hair, dolor.

Always a question
Bigger than itself 

They say you're leaving Monday
Why can't you leave on Tuesday?

Questions filled with sorrow
Though my heart won't lie.

There will never be another road,
That leads me to your raven hair.

Sometimes the answers
Ease upon us with simplicity 

They say you're leaving Monday.
I whisper, "You don't have to leave."
