You been waiting for me to call and I been waiting for you to call and nobody calls and we just wait.
We are signal-free. Our digital phones make zero ones and zero zeros. We are flush with weekday minutes. Our phone bills come every-other month.
All the germs on our telephone mouthpieces have died of neglect.
Your Nokia has a cricket in it. My Cricket has a spider.
Our telephone notepads have no notes. Our Sticky Notes are blank blue blocks.
The outsides of our refrigerators are empty.
We are sine-qua-non-talkers. We are liberators who have freed the airwaves of our speech. People who like to talk to each other should call us and thank us. And they would, too, if our numbers were listed.
We are verbally chaste. We are phone abstinant. We just say no to talking.
It isn't always easy. Sometimes I have dreams of talking to you and in the morning all the things I wanted to say stain my pillow. Sometimes (blush) I lock myself in the bathroom and talk myself silly.
