WAITING
(6/25/06)


it's a sunny
Sunday afternoon
toward the end of June
and I would expect
that most folks
are recreating
at the oceans
lakes
rivers
streams
mountains
hills
valleys
and vales
relaxing
in malls
halls
bars
cars
art galleries
movies theatres
and bowling alleys
or simply
eating
sleeping
or having sex
in any
or all
of the above

Unfortunately
I sit
in an office
waiting
waiting
waiting
and
waiting
some more
for computers
to complete
their processing
before I am once again
free to tread the terra
and recreate
relax
or fuck
in my own
fashion

I know
that God is here
as well as anywhere
and I know that
I can tap into
that eternal respite
if my mind
body
and soul
are aligned
with the absolute
but right now
I am just
waiting
waiting
waiting
for it
all
to
end
