I was born dead, you know
we all are
but then nurse Eddy
slapped my behind-
ran a temporary line

I shrieked, “Hello, life.”
not a dropped call
at all

others were though
in years to come

that job I missed
they tried three days
at least so they say
and then hired another

an old flame
(now what was his name?)
said he dialed my number
and that I didn’t answer
I must have been away
that day

I almost won the Lotto
but the call went wild
landed who knows where
I did care
but not now, not really

then there was the time
I changed the bell chime
missed that one too
let it ring aling
while I slept away the hour

what a shame? it would seem so
but no
those lost calls?
all in the dead zone
every one

but I am out of there
because when God called
and I picked up
it was an endless
Life line connection

can you hear me now?

The call from and to God are the most important ones. Good work.

I can hear you now, Janice, and God hears you especially. This poem was very creative. Praying for you today, my friend.
