Patience - Poem by Justin Tallman

How strange
and sad
in a living room
like all living rooms

A mind
like a snake
slithering through
desperately searching
for the solar warmth
to rest
in euphoria

But nocturnal you are
nocturnal you've become
a creature of the night
a vampire
living a cheap life
the blood
you feast
of a $7.25 an hour

Sit and wait
you will
until the world
is ready
for your type
of tongue
