Dawn takes forever some days.
the sky remains unchanged for hours,
oblivious to the ticking of the clock
growing louder each second.
It’s no use to sit and watch for it.
I know. I’ve tried.
The best you can do is
go on about your business,
muddle through however you can in the dark,
until you are surprised, dazzled by the light.
