a young girl
strolls into the middle of the room
looking for her father
she waits

and there is a weighty-ness to her waiting
not the delicate anticipation of a new love
but the heaviness of knowing and not knowing

why did his light blow out so young?
and even though she knows full well
why does she wait?
