30/30 Day 30-Standing in Line

Prompt: standing in line

words crowd and jostle fingertips

they never could

handle waiting, standing in line

complain, until fingers twitch

and the itch to write

tingles in the knuckles and along the creases

and find rubbing fingers together

and the words tangle together

prick and snap

as they start becoming sentences

creating a mob of ideas

and soon palm is itching

for the words never did like waiting, standing in line

nagging with ideas, these small creations

crave attention, and lack patience

I always carry a pencil in my bag
