telephone line by elo is the best song in the world.

november 27, 2018 — 3:40 pm


past poetry polluting the present,

letters of intent sit silently on your desk,

already knowing what it says.


i can’t tell if it’s grotesque or romantic

and kindly, i panic without you knowing.

semantics suggest that love is dead.

necromantic rites wanting us to come alive,

yet frantic; patience poisons our preservation.

the cycle is billowed and bothersome,

but it gives us a reason to be sad,

and again, we choose what is familiar.


letters of intent sit silently on your desk,

a statuesque of an autonomous relationships.

copilots navigating through mountains and valleys,

rallying teams of emotions, understandings,

and love as endless as life itself.


when the sunrises, i see you.

when the sunsets, i want you.

when the rain pours, i hear you.

when the clouds cover the sky, i feel you,

and again,

and again,

and again,

and again,

you want that too,

with someone else you knew.


you don’t say you love me,

so i’ll do the same.

the roses are dead,

i hope you find some once again.
