I Can’t Wait

Feeling Subzero

I Can’t Wait

I found a strand of her hair,
strewn across my suitcase,
while I was waiting to leave—
Air Tran, Flight 53, to Orlando.

I’ve been waiting to leave her
for a long time; or at least in my mind
that’s how it seems, when
you’re waiting.

I’m waiting for the day I forget,
when I don’t let little things
like random stands of hair
remind me.

I can’t wait
to forget.
