Waiting for something to happen 

Waiting for something to happen 

that isn’t 


waiting for something 

that Godot 


Waiting for someone

to hiccup 

more than me.

You see

waiting is (a) creating




Not Farting But Founding… 



The rain fall?

The toilet flush?

The doorbell ring?


The jackdaw land?

The chicken lay?

A pony snort?


That fish spawn?

This hiccup die?

Her tongue melt?

Her wit end?

Her scream echo?


Friday follow?

The poet’s grip falter?

Your journey age?


The albatross be called Wisdom?

My hummingbird depart?

My sign language strike a chord?

Your fingernails warm?

Waiting for something to happen…

A story take on a character?

This ceremony embrace your destiny?

My watch tick?

Tim Miller wake in time 

to catch Godot working?


Waiting for something to happen.
