Wait (Espera)  
Wait (Espera) by Randa-Noel Johnson (my dear friend)

(Spanish and English translation included)

Espera (Wait)
by Randa-Noel Johnson
Espera

Espera - a que vienen los golpes
Espera- a que los golpes se paren
Espera-a que saquen los suturas

Espera

Espera- una hora tranquila
Espera- un dia de paz
Espera- que el se desemborrache

Espera

Espera- el comentario cruel
Espera- a que empieza la pelea
Espera-a que empieze la luna de miel

Espera

Espera- un lugar en el refugio
Espera- a que se dan cuenta tus amigas
Espera-a que Dios molifica su corazón corajudo

Espera

Espera-a que llega su cheque
Espera-a que él se inunda en el alcohol
Piensa ser la única

Espera

Me despierto de un sueño profundo a ver mi mano agarrando su mano como un tornilllo de carpintero-
Tiro su mano como algo venenoso.
El miedo en sus ojos es un espejo del miedo que él ha visto demasiadas veces en los mios.

Espera- a que crezca el coraje
Espera- la próxima maldita pelea
Espera- a que vuelvan las vacas del fil
La esperanza desvaneciendose como un morete viejo

Ya no espero no más por tí

Wait

Wait--for the blows to fall
Wait--for the blows to stop
Wait--'til the stitches come out

Wait

Wait--for an hour alone
Wait--for a day of peace
Wait 'til he's sober again

Wait

Wait for the snide remark
Wait for the fight to start
Wait for the honeymoon phase

Wait

Wait for the shelter space
Wait for your friends to notice
Wait for the Lord to soften his heart

Wait

Wait for her check to come
Wait for the booze to run
Think she is the only one

Wait

I wake from a sound sleep to find my
hand on his wrist like a vise--I throw
his hand away from me like it was poison.
The fear in his eyes mirrors the
fear he's seen too often in mine.

Wait for the rage to build
Wait for the next damn fight
Wait till the cows come home
Hope fading like an old bruise

I wait no more for you.

hey, can you give us a call, it looks like one of your domains has an issue and we don't have current contact info for you in the system, you can call in, hit option 4 and ask for me and I'll get you squared away.

I'm out of the office 1-3(ish) today, but shawn specifically (newbie) or anyone else in support can help, just tell them it's a forward unknwn issue.

oh, that email i got about turning off the mail forward to postmaster for unknown addresses? I'll get on it, been too busy to do it right away. I don't use uppitywomen email anyway so feel free to turn it off over the weekend if needed.
