Ode to a Telephone Booth

We live in the same world
Same feelings
Same needs
Same us

We live in a different world
Less telephone booths
More headsets
Less talks
More texts

A telephone booth is a keeper of stories

Like
Only there
Outside of everywhere else
Inside of the small private space
He would think of cotton candy
There
Her nightingale voice
Poured sweetness in the air
It’s a true story

Like
Only there
Between the glass walls
While his life was in flames
He would whisper “I miss you mom”
And she would guide him safely back
Back home
It’s a true story

Like
Only there
The magic worked
If she felt all alone
Joy was waiting
On the other side of a ring tone
It’s a true story

It’s the truth

There
We close out the noise
Get brave
Let the words slip away
Down the wire
Somewhat tangled
Perhaps black
We feel good
About what we have to say
