PAD 2: Phone Call

Topic number 2 for the Poem a Day Challenge: Machines

Phone Call

Standing in the hallway

Waiting

Ready to cross your legs

Like a little girl

Impatient

You hear the unmistakable

Jingle ring

“Hello, Maria, you would not believe…”

And you don’t believe.

And you’re not Maria.

And it’s not your phone.

You are

Still

Waiting

On

Line

For

The

Only

Working

Bathroom

In

The

Club.

And the girl inside

Is on her phone.
