A Premature Lady

image of desert

I
an old lady
waiting in this parched bed
for something to happen

which cannot happen.


I
an old lady
with an impatient
unsated belly


that will not rain.


I
an old lady
whose slow mind spreads out
so far her eye has
lost sight.


I
the one
who age must not tame -


May my drying up cause this spark to flame!
