Elongated seconds crawling crusts of centipedes, crabs, joyful as the jinglebelly muzak underneath my skin. Sluggish earthworms: heartbeats drumbeats upbeat — soon. “Can i have them wrapped?” Inhale-exhale the weight of stranded jellyfish. “Your credit-card won’t work” Trickling slowly: sweat in rivulets when intellect disconnects. My winter coat’s too warm … for waiting.
Today my prompt at toads is about waiting at toads. It’s the first of advent, and hopefully you can also find some serene moments in waiting. I will also link this to Poetry Pantry.
