ongoing

there’s forty-one emails
unread in my inbox.
on my phone, five new voicemails
go unheard, unanswered.
the number stays undialled.

three tweets – a quiet yell with the
@
and two instagram likes.
it’s all going on the tally.

there’s real perseverance,
i will concede that.
this is a waiting game
for a reason though.

what that reason is,
i still don’t quite
know.

so far, i’m patient. calm.so far, i’m yet to
succumb.
