because nothing is ever as easy
as just letting it go,
my love says do you think
jennifer connelly’ll even pick up?
I say she is as likely as the last girl I called
and we all have a laugh at this
because she did not pick up either!
one day my love says
’you will float your phones and your internets
and your need to reach out in the dark
like so many newspaper boats on a pond,
in a room, filled with things we don’t need’
I wonder about this and scratch
at the follicles slowly growing on my neck.
