"waiting," by Leigh Herrick. Performed by Leigh Herrick. Tingshas, Leigh Herrick.
we are quiet now silent in the stillness that occurs after all efforts are
perceived to fail we are waiting it seems waiting for all governments to rise and fall
waiting for the eyes to see those who are waiting for US and they too are quiet now
in the wait where even sand today seems to wait quietly as flies go buzzing by in their
desert knowing as winds begin to conjure and songs of mourning prepare themselves
in the throats of those who know that flies come to market to rub their legs on the backs
of old fruit knowing the wait is almost over knowing now it won’t be long
