#119

Open boxes marked
“Hold for”, find
A blue-jeaned girl in jelly sandals standing rooted
Beneath the oak tree that marked halfway to
Love, and ten minutes to heartbreak.
A red-lipped woman with flowered hair staring
Past her white wine reflection over her shoulder at
The door
A pink-cheeked boy beneath monkey bars fumbling
With the note in his pocket and kicking at the
Gravel
A wing-tips-cuff-links who fiddles with his phone scrolling
Over names he doesn’t read because he’s still
Waiting
Like bank vaults full of tocks and ticks we
Deposit
Time in those we hope will show
Setting expectations low, in case they
Don’t,
But still we hold
