“The Ubiquity Of The Need For Love” by Ronald Koertge

I leave the number and a short
message on every green Volvo
in town
Is anything wrong?
I miss you.

The phone rings constantly.
One says, Are you bald?
Another, How tall are you in
your stocking feet?

Most just reply, Nothing’s wrong.
I miss you, too.

    1. Isn’t it good?!
      Speaking of…gurl…you’ve been writing some madly powerful and phenomenal stuff lately!
      Sorry I have’t commented–been reading via email on my phone–but damn. Just damn.
      Can I steal another piece for next week sometime? 😉


      1. I really loved Recipes…esp “Give me something worth forgetting over” … ooph!

        Sugarcane and Too Tired to Tell my Fingers got me too. Could personally relate to the Two of Us Talking Again. God, I’ve got some scabs that are finally starting to heal after continuously picking at them… So uh yeah…your recent work has been really kicking me, in the best of ways of course. 😉

        And thank you for saying yes! You’re so awesome. It’ll be one of the pieces I mentioned, if that’s ok, and I’ll link back to it of course.
