Waiting

‘I think they should place –
a bench right here,
so that people can sit down.’
‘Or a bus that passes once a day,
for a trip into the town’.

I asked him how long he’d wait?
He said:
‘I am here, and that’s my only plan;
we cannot take another step,
without the written word of Sam’.
‘We will wait just a little while,
time has not changed yet;
‘For me, I’m here for Godot –
Vladimir thinks we are waiting,
just for death’.

I stood one watch with Estragon,
While Vladimir tried to sleep.
