The uncertainty is so hard to take.

Talking Heads

 

Waiting for the outcome

of the deal make-or-break chatter,

when the fate of millions

are held in their mouths.

The deadline today,

but those moving lips and talking tongues

have made that life or death

step back a bit

and move away.

So now we’re left

in another limbo,

with no certain end to uncertainty;

the distinction between

make-or-break,

life and death,

has blurred, slurred

and left me picturing the talking heads

of zombies in its stead.
