Curio

We have an old rotary telephone

it is disconnected, a curio, a quaint reminder

one day it rang and I did not answer it

for a long half minute

as I did not recognise the sound

 

The Future was calling

I asked what lay in store for me

and there was only silence

I asked, “is that a good silence, or

a bad silence?”

The Future answered in a voice

devoid of melody

“only silence.”
