Voices on the Wind Voices on Waiting
The State of Wait by Michelle O'Hearn The state of being in a state of readiness With residence afoot remaining off foot For now is forever in a state of wait Tonight, I promise to be ready and waiting For comfort to come debating the state Of affairs or this blanket a better cover Over my head or this televised debate Look down at the carpet to the fuzzy soles Foot wrap the cushy barefoot trap Of softened discomfort “put them on, put them on” My slippers cry out in a state of wait.
