We’re counting down now.

Hour by hour.

Minute by minute.

Escape’s almost in our power.

 

 

poem- exasperation November 15, 2016

Your desperation

leads me to exasperation

How many times do I tell you?

How many times did I tell you?

How many times will I tell you?

Too many.

Once more.

If you do it when you’re asked

Begin when assigned the task

You will not be desperate

and I will not exasperate.

Dinner is ready

Waiting on the table.

Where is he?

I wait for the elevator.

She waits for the elevator.

They wait for the elevator.

We wait for the elevator.

Wait

Wait

Wait

for the elevator.

Rap Rap Rap, cane on elevator door.

“We’re working on it!” come the call.

Wait.

Wait.

Wait.

for the elevator.

An hour is

60 minutes

3600 seconds

Seven days

since you promised,

the grey cloak

over the hills

offers no warmth

for my wishful heart.
