The Call

English phone booth


Last night in a dream

The call that I had been making

For 24 years

Was picked up

“Of course there are…”

The call was interrupted

By my waking

But what was left

The sound of breathing on the other end

Has changed my life.

        This one was the image, I’ve just come back from London so it made me smile. Loved the poem, the imagery, the answering of the phone seems to lead to who knows what over the next 24 years? I can’t put it right, just grabbed me. 🙂
