Waiting for by Majella Haugh

Spitting time onto reclaimed floors

Dust rising

Waiter please

I wave

Out the light spectrum

Well certain lengths

Waiting for lush violet to mix

With the reddish hue of your lips

From being outside

I inside

Waving

You without a hat

Shining in the sunlight

I on a torn velvet seat

Being ignored

By waiting
