Small Talk in the Vestibule

That’s the thing about living
That tempts us to speak,
Medium-sized animals,
Hungry, greedy, horny, scared,

As if we might know something
About fate: we have to wait.
It won’t speed up or slow down

For us, although it’s always
Speeding up and slowing down.
We’re not bred to know

We have no control,
But observation’s angels,
While we’re waiting, teach us doubt.
