waiting…no more





she is waiting

for the light to change

for an opening

to be understood

or visible

for the kettle to boil

the paint to dry, the storm to pass, an answer




and that one waits


until it’s her turn

(when is her turn?)

to exhale

from the sidelines

until it’s okay

for the shouting to stop

by the checkout

by the moonlight

for the healing



ah, irony!


as waiting

spawns more, still more

waiting swells

into some undeniable, oxymoronic tsunami of stasis

bursting dams

and, waiting no longer




she pours forth
