let’s expect more, says

let’s expect more, says
no one ever, at least not
for real, managing

our own expectations to
be sorely disappointed

at what stage do we

at what stage do we
become lazy, permit
disappointment to
creep in, hold us
hostage, like the best
drama series this season

it will take two

it will take two
fingers of new
york minutes

to stop polishing
off one another’s
sentences as if
we were meant to
be. i’ll try to not
be disappointed when
you disappoint me

stop wasting time

stop wasting time
finding fault in
others. look to
yourself
– time
spent on
resentment
becomes
your own
undoing

today’s devotion –

today’s devotion –
tomorrow’s heartache

today’s persistence
tomorrow’s disappointment

today’s allegiance –
tomorrow’s remorse

today’s commitment –
tomorrow’s regret

because we did not

because we did not
see the broad-winged
hawk this morning
covering the
backyard, you pulled
out a favorite
from your magical
repertoire, waved
the eighth wand Dad
bought to replace the
others – you swear
it’s lighter on the
wrist – and for
the umpteenth
time, plated
a dish to right
all wrongs

it’s hard to assess

it’s hard to assess
the disappointment,
measure the disbelief,
but you’ve been there
we all have – forehead
glued to the window,
hands framing face,
eyes looking in,
searching, searching
