She Waits

She waits

In the intervening moments
She waits
for the next move to unfurl itself
Crunching slowing
a cigarette dangles
Writer’s block
Creative block
Wistful dangling participle
Ah ha
Lost in the wrinkled ramblings of a trash cavern overflowing
Creative missteps
Backlash feelings
Ah ha to blah
A violently lacking turn of phrase
Return to smoke
Swirling up
At warped living room desk
Writer anonymous
Risk deferred
Recovery assured
Puff puff
