Entry 163

Sass on the telephone…

I hold it at arm’s length.

Speaker sputters&barks. 
Buzzing.
Continuous crackling becomes ever more impressive.

This long winded speech
Runs on
Uncaring of my participation:

Mumbled nonsense
Thrown in response 
To infrequent pauses.

I’m putting this
Highway-pile-up
Into my pocket.

Probably solving that problem.

Logic could resolve this conflict 
But
I am exhausted.

Into the pocket!

Patient communication
Requires attention 
That I do not currently possess.
