Dialing it In

awkward when
reaching,

whether just to plug
the thing in

or, in prayer..

for clear sight during
needy times, in
the face of..

unearthed
shames,

toothy grins of
secret
sin..

these days i only reach
busy beeps-

cold message prompts
of voicemail
boxes..

each time i
dial it
in.

it’s why i
rather
fade

into another
one eared
listen

than interrupt
the small
talk,
to..

shovel more
words
in.
