I Am Waiting

“I am waiting for my case to come up
and I am waiting for a rebirth of wonder…
and I am waiting  for the discovery
of a new symbolic western frontier
and I am waiting for the American Eagle
to really spread its wings  and straighten up and fly right
and I am waiting for the Age of Anxiety  to drop dead…
and I am perpetually awaiting
a rebirth of wonder…”

Lawrence Fehrlingetti
