you just have to wait

you just have to wait, they say
you just have to take it one day at a time
one minute at a time
one second at a time

don’t gouge out your eyeballs
or rip off your toenails
or claw the skin off your arms

you just have to wait

a true knot is so rare, they say
it’s so unlikely to happen again

don’t reserve a spot at the cemetery
don’t pick out a burial outfit
imagine the room being pink or blue, not empty

everything looks good today
we have no reason to think
you won’t get to take this baby home

you just have to wait
you just have to wait, they say
