BLURB

I’m all wound up for wishes, waiting properly, patiently, politely. I’ll wait long days and nights, weeks, months and years. I’d only like to meet these wishes I made alone some nights a while back. I wonder if they’ll come fast or slow, all at once or never. I hope there’s no mistake and I don’t receive another’s, or even worse, they get all of mine! Like someone else’s tailored clothing, only mine will fit me. Snugly, comfortably, unmistakably perfected for a single human soul. I may seem to you quite comfy but I’m waiting waiting waiting. I’m checking all the exits and keeping track of time. If you see me quietly sitting, looking off contently as a take long drags from my cigarette, you should know I’m all wound up, waiting for my wishes to walk through the door and give me all they’ve brought to give. [Ryan Nimmo]
