Wait

After breath is gone, wait,
we shall lead.

Again, birth begun, please,
wait, we can not

be clean with need.

Again, hearts bend in lean,
suspended, wait, please.

We can carry, continuing,
carry silence,

after, the sincerest deed.

After wanting, waiting
to teem—both

moth and beam, will
you wait?

Will we please?

I am honoured,
ceasing, bothering

dream, quieted.
