"I Keep Waiting For The Other Shoe To Drop"

 I keep waiting
 for the other shoe to
 for that lowest
 pendulous apple to
 break loose
 for the Tower of Pisa to
 waver slightly
 then smoothly incline
 carving down
 into that soft terra santa
 borrowed from Jerusalem
 and it
 nestled neatly in that holy court
 would await such
 a visit

 it would receive those stony blocks mercifully
 is awaiting such things
 our mission
 that is
 standing behind the striped lines
 not proceeding until instructed to do so
 by the higher authorities
 looking looking
 for that event
 that quick
 to bring focus and depth and loss
 to our lives
