30 Oct

Only kinda listening to each other here?

Who amongst us remembers running to pay phones, getting home to get a call? (Now that was real love.) … waiting a few more minutes with no call, before you went out? Considering making that last call, knowing you wouldn’t be available for awhile, knowing what unavailable was?

Walking around like we had something other to think about

than the every moment someone else was seeing us,
Thinking about what it really meant to be seen,
Knowing what it meant to be seen,
Knowing what it meant for somebody to bother to “wait home” for a call,                                                                                                                                        To be late because you got a call or waiting for a call.

(The number is dwindling, those of us who know what it means,                                                                                                                                                          “I was late, waiting for a call.”)

To have waited, or be waiting, or to have the sense of waiting,
To want to wait to stay home to get that call.
