FORGOTTEN PHONE
(4/13/19)


she's
in a panic

she left
her smart
device
at home
on the
charger
this morning

what will
people think
when they
try to
call

text

tag

like her

and get
no reply?

they'll
think her
a stuck up
snob

no doubt

or at
best
just critically
injured

I shake
my head
in mock
sympathy

I don't
tell her
that I left
my flip phone
at home
as well

that no one
I know
will know
the difference
