Patient

Seconds stack up;
roll call soldiers
standing in line –
time,
to be ticked off
the list
 

tick
 

tick
 

tick
 

shuffling feet,
weighed down
by waiting,
worn down
by aching,
faking interest
 

tick
 

tick
 

tick
 

anticipating moment
conscription will cease,
de-mob,
release
finally
into peace
 

tick
 

tick
 

fucking tick
