Poem 20160229

it was quiet and i was bored
maybe lonely
so i took out my phone and dialed
the oldest number in my contacts

–we’re sorry
the universe is busy tonight
or can’t come to the phone
please leave a message
and the universe will get back to you
as soon as possible

i hung up, annoyed
she always had something else
going on
and i think my messages always
wound up in a black hole
