Waiting, waiting as I tumbled a long stumble
Careering up ladders, becoming a being-
There, one foot out the door. No poems.
Except notes for the chorister
Notes for life not to wait
Not to wait.
Catching up with words, I am leaping after music
Starting at the beginning and then running
I am scrounging, digging, ferreting,
Rummaging in a mind waiting
For the rhythm of poem play
To compose the score
