Rookie - 2 Points (April 29,1961 / Lewiston, ME USA)

Disconnected: For T


No reaching out
no touching

No more punching out the numbers
that once rung you

No more wireless command
that all last summer brung you



I hope you're doing fine
reaching out, in theory

My eyes no help to you
whether peering bright or squinting teary



Like 1999 again
wondering's the best i can do,

ride the hours 'till earned free time
red-eyed, the better to see you.

    Like 1999, wondering's the best I can do... Speaks volumes. You have an awesome way of luring the reader in with tidbits of a story, all the while, keeping secrets! Terrific writing!

    This is a very touching poem Chris. I can tell this person meant a lot to you. There are some very memorable lines here; 'wondering's the best i can do' is prehaps the most memorable. Overall this is a very good poem. Nice work.
