You pick up your phone
And begin a new message.
You text the word: HEY.

Respectfully I
Answer your oh so urgent
Cellular letter.

I respond with: HEY,
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO? and send.
You take a long time.

Maybe your riposte
Will be vastly creative?
All I do is hope.

-Sigh-. You let me down.
NOTHING MUCH, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Is your bland response.

Lamely I reply:
NOT MUCH, with dull temptation
To converse much more.

And you say: SAME HERE.
Only thing I say is: YEAH.
I've wasted my time.
