waiting

do i rhyme
with thyme, or blame, or
suppressed rosebuds
and i'm afraid of aphids
cancerous black on my
widow's hand

or do i rhyme with
time, or loss, or
my most gentle son
sleeping these shaded days
with little bouts of
melancholy and schumann

won't you walk inside
with me
may be stay inside
where the airs are fine
with old and sorrowed dust
we've seen the failing
of a father's pride
together

i can sit by this window
forever
how many tears are allotted
in a house with no
children
how many years
til love can fade

can i make any more
confusion
we've had so little to share
you and i
where do you want to be
when the night comes
heavy

do i rhyme with longing
or shame, or
softly grey silence
this battle's gone on
and on
there's only me
waiting

for the rhyme
