waiting

over the past few days, driving around in my car i've been listening to Ursula Rucker's previous album Silver or Lead...

the power of these pieces - in particular, the lyrics - is immediate.

excerpt from What a Woman Must Do

Waiting… for phone calls that never come
Waiting… for words of appreciation that never come
Waiting… for equal pay that never comes
Waiting

Waiting for love
Waiting for acknowledgment not judgment
Waiting
