Friday, March 3

the other night
when you called me on my ten digit number and my phone was silent

lying next to the computer,
the number flashed

sought me out



i jumped
went red
reached out to pick it up

and the computer's screen did a quick tango.

I have a flat screen putr at work, it never does the tango :(

And I have a laptop at home, the screen of which does the tango often alright, but not once when anyone calls :'(

I like your putr :)
