my phone does not ring

a friend from the past

once said


when enough days go by

my phone won’t ring

he was talking about women

would rather

talk with someone


We were talking

like all guys do

about girls

we were dating

he said we won’t

look good forever

I didn’t think much

about that

but years

raced by

and he is right

I leave messages

but calls aren’t returned

I’m guessing this works

both ways —

women leave messages

for guys

who never return calls

So many

lonely people


a friend

or just

a call

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
