Tick-Tock

I wrote this a few hours ago for FOWC: Outcome and the Weekly Scribblings: “eye of the hurricane.” I tried to write on a different topic, but this is what came out of my brain, and I kind of like it.

We wait with bated breath,
Pangs of anxiety, hanging in the im-
-Balance —
We wait in the eye of a hurricane,
Staying blind to the outcome, somewhat
Numb.
We wait as hours press forward,
As the press ceaselessly reports its
Numbers.
We wait in a calm yet tense stage
In the race; the next leg of the hurricane
Thunders.
