the endless queue, 30th March 2016

are we nearly there yet?.... soon, soon....... soon it'll be april soon enough and then we'll wonder what all the fuss was about...... april with its showers and fools and 31 days minus one...... am I wishing away march by waiting for april?..... but isn't that what everything all about, waiting..... waiting for bed, waiting for sleep, waiting to wake up again.... waiting for dinner, waiting for the train, waiting for the sun to some back again...... waiting for the end of a working day, waiting for the weekend, waiting for the show to begin...... waiting at the till, waiting for the kettle to boil... waiting for a birth, waiting for that first kiss, waiting to be old...... waiting for the next wave, waiting for the man, waiting for godot....... the endless queue of anticipation....... how tricky it is to not be waiting.... maybe I'm not wishing anything away any more than we already do......... maybe we should have invented a system of counting time that goes slower than what it does, then we could savour it longer..... or shorter than what it is so we can be where we want to be sooner...... welcome to the biggest waiting room in the world.....
