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.
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.
