waiting

waiting

downed by indecision
apathy and fear wear the same mask
transfixing eyes pass over and depart
lacking forward motion
waiting

seen from a distance
as if not owned or experienced
happenings stand
staring

choosing or not choosing
irrelevance imposes silence
time freezes over
refusing

passages
open and close
looking back doubtfully
looking forward fearfully
eyes strain and fail
are turned inward
dreaming
