Terrible not terrible

We wait and do not wait
I just want to know that it’s not cancer
Sitting yet not sitting
While forces find the sting of suburbia

terror like inertia creeps

Sitting yet not sitting
While forces find the sting of suburbia
Breeding but not breeding yet
While wives and husbands steep their innards

lands ossify before drought breaks

Breeding but not breeding yet
While wives and husbands steep their innards
We wait and do not wait
I just want to know that it’s not cancer

voyeurs mispronounce the names
