Rendered unacceptable,

No

has left the building.

 

“Can you stay after?”

“Just one more?”

“Don’t you wanna…..”

 

I ca-ah-ah-

nnnnnnnn’ttttttttttt

speak

a version of “no.”

 

Duty becomes

affirmative

reply.

 

Daring,

if I must,

to build room

for my “No,”

 

So that my

Yes

can live.
