So this is how it is, waiting
the next rotation, one more
revolution, the turn that changes
it all, to start over again
another chance, a new role
to connect down the lane
as the sun sets, to draw together
bits of day that lay in dying shade
to bundle hours expired, sealed
from pain in earlier turnings tired
to set the stage, exonerate age
begin once more, closer to the door.
