chairs in the river

May 5, 2020

waiting for the shoe to drop
waiting for the world to open
or for the monsoon to come
either would be welcomed

waking up to watch the cockroaches
growing old, losing their scuttle
despite their ignorance of the
polemic headline screams

hard to learn
to love such a pause
with its bleak infinite-looking terms
whose sharp edges will hardly be remembered
as the can is kicked down the road again

waiting for the world to open
or for the monsoon to come
either would be welcomed
