By
Anticipation manifested in unusual ways.
Fingers drumming, pen clicking.
Checking things off
this list I’ve never made
brings me closer to the end
of the foot-tapping and nail-biting,
eating up my nervous energy.
I’m ready
for it to be out of my hands.
The applications filed, invitations addressed
the dress altered, gown unwrinkled.
Because when it is
I’m free again.
