The stillness of patience

fixes me in catharsis

no waiting or refusing

letting a mind be eager

without reward or

much sustenance

or, rather, significance

Sustenance comes from

patient observation

calm continuity of

trailing days

lagging into the last

Oh patient days

I see no light at

the end of the tunnel

but I will stop a while

to observe the artistry

the graffiti on its walls

next to me
