All This Waiting

it’s a dry heat

not airless

only ebullient moths

no fireflies

those breathless words

vagaries of attention

twisted in sheets

caressing limbs

separated by miles and time

 

longing for movement

yours and mine

 

hoy dia

 

how much longer

life is so short

still we wait until next time

speaking words across

invisible lines

where no birds rest
