(poetry diary 80)

Had Jury Duty today.  Spent a lot of time waiting.  Am waiting for the election to be over & to find out our fate.  Waiting for Veteran’s Day (thought today was Veteran’s Day for some reason and put up a Veteran’s Day poem here but then took it down because we’re still waiting for that day.) So I’m posting a poem called

I Am Waiting

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting
for a rebirth of wonder
and I am waiting for someone
to really discover America
and wail
