Place of Waiting

This is our
Agreed upon place of waiting
Where we edit ourselves

Meet me
Here when you are done
I will be browsing

We skipped over
Promises to fortune
The game of life says
Go back three spaces

I sleep
Wake for bad dreams
Does anyone else
Hear phantom sounds
As they drift away?

All will be smoothed
Over
In the place of waiting

I dye my hair
A new color
Make love the first time
Or last
Become a published author
Hobble like an old person
Wrinkle my nose
Buy a useless tablet

All in this waiting place.
