Who Sang Wait? Rachel Kann

When I am up the mountain

Looking down and back on this last fiasco
I will wonder when exactly it happened

When precisely I should have known I could not rely on you

Should have never entrusted your cupped palm

With the jittery and injured hummingbird of my heart


Not actively seeking purchase or sanctuary

Instead solitary and healing inside the flesh aviary of me

But your urgent reassurance felt like the softest nest on earth

Felt like it was worth the risk

You held your hand out and she leapt and landed

Now she is starving


In your back pocket where you shoved her

Crumbled under a flyer for an event you never planned on attending


I want to take her back under my wing

Place her in the rightful cage of my ribs

Where I can protect her

When I look back

I will pinpoint the singular moment

I should have known to run
Backwards and away

Left arm folded across the heaving of my breathing

When was it that you proved yourself to be certifiably unworthy?

I should know better than to bend to you

Who glorified my significance

I wanted to believe that you loved me essentially so badly

That I would withstand all signs to the contrary

Tables turning so fast I get dizzy just listening to your rhetoric

And resistance to my intuition

I know not to ever trust men with agendas

No matter how flattering the packaging


Wrapped in angel light

My fluttering heart

Susceptible to your cooing calls
No matter you can"t handle me

No matter I know not to expect your answer

No matter I rest a**ured you will disappoint like resurrection sugar

Only hallow dissatisfaction

When I act down

Bowing my contrato

Down and out of the chorus of voices clamoring for your attention

It will be nearly imperceptible

I am practiced in the art of not mattering

One day I will bend time and s***e like rice paper

Origami out the notch on the timeline where I should have watched for stop signs

But not today

Today I will rest inside the fatigue and shame of offering up too much to someone undeserving and afraid

I should have known


Will wait

Wait for my heart to rediscover the scent of my fingerprints and follow it

When I catch wind of her beating wings

I will spirit her back inside of me
