National Poetry Writing Month: Day 29 – Waiting

9:58am
Heads bob
Hips sway
Sneakers are in
For another hard day.

10:14am
Entering,
A sea of cells
You try not to
Bump against,
And ignore the ones
Who do it to you.

10:27am
“So what’s on your mind?”
Asks no one’s voice,
Except the one residing
Behind your forehead.

10:30am
You can think of a million and twenty-six
Things.

10:38am
Are the galaxies
Really expanding
Each day
How wide
Can they become?
And how many astronauts
Are just floating out there?

10:43am
If people die
And become ghosts
How many
Are staring me in the face
At this second?

10:51am
How many people
In this park
Know someone
Who knows someone
Who knows someone else
Who knows someone I know
Who knows me?

10:57am
The song
Playing, replaying
Never pausing, quieting
How many other people
Have the same tune
Swimming in their conscience?

11:09am
The front of the line
