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.
