The Call (poem)

Updated on February 2, 2014


Just called you up to check how you’re doin’

Yes it is me

I’m doin’ fine

I miss you too




They’re all doin’ fine

Brenda landed a new job

Jimmy has a girlfriend

Michelle discovered makeup


I’m dealing with it





Yes I heard

That’s why I’m callin’

How are you holdin’ up

I’m sorry I just found out

I should have called more often

How are the kids takin’ it

I know I know It must be so confusing

But why didn’t you call me when this happened

I know I know


I’ll catch the next plane there

I should be there by tomorrow






Is anyone there

      Quite a contrast from your daily work.

      Completely believable as a conversation of necessity.

      Possibly a lover from the past?

      This reminds me of a Pink Floyd song - the same one Bill alludes to in his comment.
