30 Poems in 30 Days
Day 21 - answer a question


Not articulated, my question
yet when the phone rings
I know it's her and begin
creating a set of multiple-choice
a. fetch her from the station
b. turn off the porch light
as she won't be home at all.
c. start re-heating her dinner
It's b! "I missed the last train,
Mum. I'll see you tomorrow.
I've got my keys." All in response
to my questions, still unspoken.
