  • Some days I wake
    (make coffee)
    And sit at my computer waiting for my emails from the night to arrive

    I hope that a message will arrive that will answer my call
    (whatever it is)
    And make things complete, perfect, easy

    Email (for me) has become what I imagine a letter was like for someone else in another time
    (a surprise)
    And I feel sad that I have tied my hopes for salvation to a machine that knows nothing

    I don't know what I think I am waiting for
    (or who it will come from)
    But I know that I am waiting for some reason

    Maybe it will arrive tomorrow.
