JUST A CALL AWAY…

Promised this to Leonard Durso

MEMORIES

my old phone had a memory
with numbers saved
to ring my family

sometimes I would push the buttons
for my mother
even though I knew
that she was no longer there

just knowing her number
was still on my phone

then the phone got too old
as my mother had
and now I have a new phone
with no memories

(from my new poetry book – coming out shortly)
