i receive a text— the battery is dying and the phone is flashing red you wait patiently on the other side of earth for the sweet return reply i drive up the road nervous and urged to write you in anguish the light flashes you lie down in bed and wait for that stupid text does he not care about me? up the speedy road defeated, I pick up phone oh! defeated for real now you smile deep and tell yourself he is just in the shower no, i am gone now i have left the wretched car that killed me and a family i am in your room watching you wait for your text plug that damn phone in, will you?
