Waiting (Milestones)
Richard Evans

waiting
with diaper on for this woman
to get up off the kitchen floor and stop
bleeding while a man hovers over her
with clinched fist and scowl

waiting
for our first grade teacher to
stop crying after hearing the public address
announcement that the president had just
been assassinated in Dallas

waiting
for the spirit of Christmas to return
after a news flash that my mom's favorite song
"You Send Me" had just been shot
and killed a few blocks from our home

waiting
in the backseat of a Packard
for the policeman to stop screaming
at my father as urban soldiers
toss fire from their hands in our
neighborhood just outside of Watts

waiting
at LAX for Wilt the Stilt
to come back and finish signing autographs
after some idiot had just called him a freak

waiting
for the Greatest of All Time to
shake my hand before climbing into the
ring to start his comeback with an exhibition
bout in East Los Angeles

waiting
with eighteen year old trembling knees
for that sheriff deputy to remove
his pump action shotgun from my temple

waiting
in the delivery room for the
wrong woman to have my child

waiting
at a motel for the right woman
to find the time to slip away

waiting
on the side of the ninety one
freeway for a motorcade
to pass shortly after the funeral
of a former president shamed by the
Watergate scandal

waiting
and looking while holding onto
the entry gate at 875 S. Bundy Dr.
for some sign of what really happened that night

waiting
along with F.E.M.A. and
the Red Cross for the distraught woman to
come with us to safety days after the
Northridge earthquake leveled
her million dollar home

waiting
at the hospital
for my first and only grandchild
to be born while her father
who's been convicted of battery
is nowhere to be found

waiting always waiting
