Jonathan Hayes
Silence

its the usual scene
im at my desk

the TV is on
im not watching it

weve been together
about three months

its our nightly phone call

im half drunk
and mentioning

that someone has been calling all week
and hanging up without leaving a message

i tell her it could be my estranged father or ex-fiance

she asks, if she wants you back, what will you do?
