“Waiting in Vain” – Makati, 01 August 2016

consider
the ennui
of waiting
for apparently
nothing:
the tiring
tedium
of seconds
of minutes
of hours
wearing you
down
ticking away
moments
off your
life.

and you
stare
unseeing out
of a
cell
with transparent
but palpable
walls,
wondering
whether or
not
to flee
to run
to scream
to break
out
or to
break down
completely.
