The Wait

August 2, 2017


Days draw out like hot glass
without end
Time waits action
and night birds cry no peace

I trickle around buildings
wincing before the light
or shadow in the night
I haunt dark streets
beneath the moon-clock sky

Organic time salamanders
over the earth in me
while eyes flick out
against dead buildings
and all about 

stupid traffic lights blink
