I Didn’t Call

He waited

Or did he?

Tick tock goes the clock

I sat there

Phone on the table

I didn’t want to

Or maybe just couldn’t.

The phone and I sat there

While on the other side, he waited

Calling In Sick

I wanted to work today

but dizziness struck me

worse of all, loose bowel movement

came a knockin’ at my door

I had no choice but to call in sick

and let them know I won’t be around

 

spent the entire day at the hospital

rehydrated and much better

still I’d have to call in again tomorrow

as I’m advised to rest

Wrong Number

I dialed the digits and heard a ring

The voice on the other side greeted politely

And so I started the conversation

Half-way through, I stopped to look at a text

but ignored it

 

The conversation was great

and enjoyable

It’s been a long time since I spoke with my friend

and it was certainly nice to hear her voice again

 

Before ending the call I said,

“So Jane, when will we meet? I sure miss you.”

There was a pause

and then the voice on the other line replied,

“Uhm, my name’s not Jane.

To tell you honestly, I have no idea who you are.

I think you dialed the wrong number.”
