One-Sided (#20 Na/GloPoWriMo)


I’m hearing only one side of this conversation
Uh, huh. Yup. Do you have coordinates?

I know you will be gone tonight,
Looking for lost souls. My soul at home

Hoping your soul will be safe.
That you will bring in the unprepared.

One-sided conversations,
Imagination filling in gaps:

What does shadow on my x-ray mean?
How long do you think?

Are you kidding me?
Uplilting voice, eager.

How much if we increase our co-pay?
Double our deductible?

And the droning insistence of newscasters,
Hopelessness an imagination cannot correct.
