POEM: why we waited


why we waited

we knew each other back
when knowing each other
was all we could do
when other forces
were between us like
Wednesdays in a week
we had the occasional moment
warily circling in the kitchen
watching for a sign
waiting for an opening
wondering whether a visit
would be inappropriate
wishing the timing
were just a little different
who knew that if we
waited just a little
while longer, it
would be
