time and impatience

she watches light refractions in her vodka and raspberry
and is happy she chose it
instead of a screwdriver-
the color changes in the shifting light
and a tiny show carries on
in her hi-ball glass, balanced on her knee.

a new letter j sits at her feet,
and she wonders if this is the one they spoke of.
because when she twisted the apple,
around
and around in her hand,
the stem snapped sharp, between i and k.

in the years since then, there have been other letters,
but none that would fit.

her sentence will never be complete until that last letter falls into place.

time and impatience
