Afterthought 254—Paused

Posted in nothing special by maggie on 2015/06/12
 
I am to put the scene on pause
so I won't have to catch
him up when he retakes his place
after a bathroom break, detour
through the nursery, last trip
out with the dog, back with a wedge
of cheese and crackers, to pick
up where we were.
A night I wouldn't write down,
only passing time.
I wait to.  I wait for.  I wait,
fingering something remote.
Something on hold.
One minuscule space in a line
— still, quiet, unknown.
I do as told.
