THE CALL
(7/3/16)


another
death

no great
surprise
really

we know
with the advancing years
that these notifications
will only
increase

still
there's a slight
shock

a moment
of disbelief

a recollection
of a final
conversation

the realization
that no more
will take place

strange

we wonder
at all
of our
interactions

what
our last words
to someone
will be

loading
their memories
with immortal
trivialities
