2020-10-27- Dialing it In

awkward in
reaching,

whether just
to plug the
thing in
or..

++++

in prayer..

for clearer eyes, in
these needy times,
in the face of..

unearthed
shames,
midst..

the toothy grins
of buried
sin..

++++

pity i only reach
busy beeps

or colder prompts
of voicemail
boxes..

each time i
dial it
in.

++++

it’s why i
rather
laze

into another
one eared
listen

than interrupt
the small
talk,
to..

shovel more
words
in.
