Waiting

waiting

 

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting for the bell to ring just the once
I’m waiting for the Baker Street sax solo to make the whole world right
I’m waiting for the clocks to go wherever they want to
I’m waiting for the hashtag to signify
I’m waiting for the wall to fall

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting for the doors to close
I’m waiting for the supermoon to smile
I’m waiting for the Packers to score
I’m waiting for more incredible strings
I’m waiting for repayment

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting to be asked again
I’m waiting for the next CMA star mash-up
I’m waiting for Willie Nelson to grow his hair
I’m waiting for that review
I’m waiting to hear the coyote call in town

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting for Dylan to say far out
I’m waiting for Vlautin’s next book
I’m waiting to find out if
I’m waiting for my first sight of the Liber Exoniensis
I’m waiting for my poems to win

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting to find out who’s asking
I’m waiting to see if I run out of steam
I’m waiting to procrastinate
I’m waiting for Martha to stop singing in French
I’m waiting for my knee to cease hurting

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting at the green light
I’m waiting for metaphor to rule the world
I’m waiting for Martha to stop aping Linda Lewis
I’m waiting for slovenly staccato singing to stop
I’m waiting to kick alliteration’s ass again

What are you waiting for?

This fooled you

What are you waiting for?

I’m waiting to know if I should have stopped at the fooled you line
I’m waiting in anticipation of waiting some more
I’m waiting with The Kinks
I’m waiting for the next star to fall
I’m waiting to know
