HOME


waiting
he sits
counting
if he could
the intakes of air
when will she
when will he
be home

waiting
he sits
calculating
if he could
how the dark spot on the rug
grows longer
when will she
when will he
be home

waiting
he stretches
yawning
elongating the tenderness
trapped in his spine
when will she
when will he
come home

waiting
he scratches
reaching
wishing for a warm hand
caressing fingers
when will she
when will he
come home

the key jangles
he knows it will
listening
hearing its melody
as it plugs into the door
now she is
now he is
home

and I am
at the door
before its opened

how do you do that
she asks
he asks
my tail rises
home


waiting has got to be the hardest thing ever to do...
