Dial Tone

I want to be a number important enough to be memorized

10 digits, a call away no matter how many telephone polls are between us.

The distance would be measured in syllables and smiles.

No loss would ever matter if I can punch in numbers

Hear the dial tone a thousand times and never be bored with it.

Make a tune and name it after the quirk in your brow

I want to be something worthy enough to be remembered.

A thought on a late-night, the stirring of nerves, butterflies turned stingrays.

The song you can’t get out of your head when you just want sleep.

I want to just be a phone call away.

I need you to listen.

Don’t forget me.

Please…pick up.
