for hours by the phone
in hopes that you can resolve
the problem of my advice unheard
I have been so long away
that I learn even less every day
about taking my own time
at the lessons that we have been hard to believe
and even less easy to see
and the wind is not cold on my face
because I can only feel one thing
the cherished time you have given to me
after the year started
it all seems too important
to hesitate any longer
and I am no longer willing to put up with
looking out at the frozen lake
of my patience
while I have begun to repeat the action
that allows me to avoid
making this mistake,
or any other,
ever again…
