{July 18, 2013}   I Wait

iwait
i wait
because in the grand scheme of things
patience is a virtue
and good things come to those who wait,
but i’m tired of following rules
whispering silence and this long stretch of endless
desert dry and not a cloud in sight
we resort to smoke signals
an occasional morse code tap tap tapping
covert ops, in keeping with tradition,
my vocal recognition kicks in
when the slightest syllable slips from your perfect mouth
and my legs get wobbly
tremble-y with a side of electric
keeping me humming just long enough
to keep me waiting
