LXXXII-12 Here I Am

Postby hawkseye » Sun Dec 10, 2017 5:27 pm

Here I Am

Waiting
not always
my forte

waiting
for a call

ready
for a walk

waiting
waiting

dare I go
knowing
odds build
against me

five minutes
out—call
likely to arrive
trudge home
handle
business

awkward

thus
I’m waiting
not always
my forte
but
here I am.

No cell phone on your walk? Good for you.

There's a circle in hell where the really bad people spend eternity waiting for a phone call.

i consider that having to wait for late people is a sign of ultimate disrespect.

then, 41 years ago, i married into the Mexican culture, and here i am, steaming anytime an appointment is made and i'm the only one on time.

I give people my cell phone number and they can reach me almost anywhere.

being too conscious of waiting creates too much anxiety and frustration. Using that time, getting your mind on other things----that's the key to surviving those anxious moments.
