Love ItLove It

waiting by the bench


for a moment the pause

a bag on the bench with

remnants of a lunch that

rushed was never finished.

the birds are there, watching as we wait

watching for their chance to

grab a bit of peanut butter spread

with jelly on

bread that 


lies at the edge of a plastic bag.

but the birds wait

as we wait.

standing still 

knees locked

hearts slowing to a single beat per hour

a rate

similar to the silence

as we wait. Birds watching intently

at the peanut butter and jelly

left on a bench

in a crumpled pile

another unfinished lunch.

    • I’ve come to look for America, i line by Paul Simon in his song. My favorite line from that song is “playing games with the faces!”

      I think many people make up stories about the things they see. Writing them down is a different thing!
