WAITING FOR A CHECK

4-18-90

Not waiting for Godot,

waiting for a check and a double espresso,

in downtown Carmel.

There was an earthquake this morning,

minor jolts.

I am almost awake, amid a swarm of tourists

from all over the world,

here we are together,

at almost lunch time,

reality’s knick knacks,

ears to the wind,

eyes to a picture of time,

flowing in a larger scheme of things than we can imagine.
