A Premature Lady

image of desert

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

which cannot happen.

an old lady
with an impatient
unsated belly

that will not rain.

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

the one
who age must not tame -

May my drying up cause this spark to flame!
