Telephone

Telephone
Out there in the woods
I see it through raindrops suspended

Armchair empty, waiting
Between wet fallen maple leaves
And sunlight
There beneath a canopy of cedar limb lace
I hear it ringing not without urgency
I pause and then I sprint
Who’s calling from where
And for whom
But I am slow motion

My breath a heavy sound
The ringer out of patience
