Dedicated to the Brave
By Sibusiso Masters
It’s not permanent
I’ll be back in three months
Let’s meet on Thursday?
Make it a maybe, baby
I think I might, at least, I’m pretty certain
But can we maybe make a rain check?
No need, I’ve got a rain slicker
I’m only up for the weekend, I’ve found a reason to stay
And she’s beautiful in every way
It’s unintended, but that’s how these things go, no?
Our life plans dovetail and I can really see things going far
No end to this horizon in sight
She’s changed her mind
fine feathers fray
She needs to explore, take flight
I think I’ll join her, I’m malleable
Like water flowing
I’ll take the path of least resistance
No matter how hard
Channel illusory spirits of the future
and the current slips away
I didn’t see what was going on
Maybe we can see each other again some time?
I’ll be back in a week
It wasn’t permanent, anyway
