Waiting….

I’m a woman
stretched through
liquid time

Sealed in
a resinous
pause.

Waiting…

Tick.
Tick.
Tick.

…for resurging
creative superfluidity

…for breath and
thought and
wordforms
to ripple and
flow in ways
wondrous and
unpredictable.

Waiting…

Tick.
Tick.
Tick.

…to re-form.
Reignite.
Rebirth this
she-self,
this identity,
this face I put
brazenly into the
world as my
offering on the
altar of
purpose.

Waiting…

Tick.
Tick.
Tick.
