National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #21 (pt. 1)

Here is my poem for Day 21 using the POETRYisEVERYTHING prompt: a poem describing a subject by only what the subject is not.

Not a vindication
Not an exoneration
Not a justification
Not a rationalization
Not a complete set of evidence
Not containing definitive conclusions
Not coming straight out with what everyone is thinking
Not what everyone was expecting
Not the way it was supposed to be
Not at all satisfying

Not even remotely settling the matter
