Comfort Call.

Ring. Ring. Ring.
Hello?
Yes, it’s me
I am calling you,
you pick up on ring three;
no nervousness involved,
so glad you took my call…
He spoke of things,
had my head nodding,
yes, yes!
I know that feeling!
It was a comfort call;
Hello?
Yes, it’s me
after so much
tragic misery
that we’ve been forced
to eat as reality…
We joked about,
how the bottom falls out,
just when you think
you’ve got the hang
of anything.
A comfort call;
Hello?
Yes, it’s me
I’m okay
He’s fucking
surprisingly
funny…
and though he knows a lot,
if he doesn’t know,
he’s not –
afraid to suck it up
and ask me.
Hello?
Yes, it’s us
A friendship full
of creepy,
natural trust;
that he can’t explain,
and I make no sense of…
It was a comfort call.

Comfort Call.

Comfort Call.
