Waiting

Another game of solitaire

lights up the computer

win or lose

as if it had importance

filling the endless waiting

waiting for lunch

waiting for supper

waiting to be called

the television roars to life

nattering on endlessly

spewing drivel

and old movies

filling the endless waiting

waiting for visitors

waiting for the mail

waiting to be needed

and I write

aimlessly, with no purpose

often crying

and searching for insight

filling the endless waiting

waiting for something

waiting for someone

waiting to die
