Pointless Conversation

I am the other line on the phone.
You are the
“Hold on one second,”
“Wait, I got a text,”
“Got another call.”
So I sit and listen to the static silence.
And I wait.
And I know where I am.
I am sitting on your dresser
or your bed
or your counter
And I am waiting for you to pick me back up.
Perhaps I’m still in your palm pressed to your ear.
I’m just waiting for you to click over.
And for us to continue our conversation.
I am waiting for the
“Hey I’m back”
“Sorry you had to wait”
“Where did we leave off”
So I sit and listen to the static silence.

“Hey, I got to go.”

Suddenly the wait was never worth the conversation.

Then again it never has been.

Artist's Description

It irritates me when I’m put on hold when all I really want is to hear your voice.
