Life sways in gasps
a breath struggles
over sagging phone waves.
The words I send trip off
the line stretching two ends
swinging high above the valley.
I speak floating in clouds
the voice may reach you
over quivering cable
wait, let me die,
'Don't disconnect.'

'Don't disconnect' - last words on an Italian youth to his beloved from his hospital bed using a doctor's phone

Captive
in a windowless world.

Life sways in gasps
a breath struggles
over sagging phone waves.
The words I send trip
the line stretching two ends
swinging high above the valley.
I speak floating in clouds
the voice rebounds
over quivering cable
wait, let me die,
'Don't disconnect.'

Opening and shutting
the balcony door,
I announce 'Honey, I am home'.

A visitor,
will soon be a rare event.
Exciting yet unnerving.

How silent is the street
I fear
there's no one living anywhere

I promise I will never complain of spring,
however short or colourless.
Never.
