so, the waiting

July 19, 2013 § 2 Comments

is there a special
dedication for
surviving in the land
of the atrophied?
perhaps a name
etched on a wall or
an honorary star
imprinted in concrete

do you picture this
the same way I do?
as a collective of
bad days shaken out
from the rest

I’ve listed the reasons to
keep moving, I
have held up for review
maps
with routes clearly defined
but all around I witness
expanding rigor as
the ground beneath
us groans as roots
lodge deeper

is this the outcome of not noticing
a window closing
on the arc of the sun?

so, the waiting continues and
soon, the only light
offered
will be that
which can be imagined
remembered
or wished for
