Electronic Touching


You
called
me
last
night

but
were
afraid
to
speak
into
my
answering
machine

Didn't
you
know...

I
was
listening
to
your
voice

and
heard
a
sad
sigh
being
chased. ..

by
a
dial
tone

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
