this is how hope works,
paint everything a color that they have not named yet, 
call it, "clocks", pretend it 
doesn't give you nightmares, keep your body 
until someone makes you a decent trade.
it's getting too cold to pretend 
you are not cold.

this is how hope works, 
it tells you not to wait but
you wait.
apologize for stealing whatever you stole
when your hands forgot
what they were doing, 
roll a stone in front of your heart's coffin and say
"you can come back out
when you learn how to behave".
