By
What?
Did you say something?
Sorry.
I thought you did.
Or
Maybe it’s that
I wish
You did.

During those awkward
Moments of silence
On the phone
Late at night.

I wish
You
Would have asked me many
Different things
Like …

Did you see
So and so
Get in trouble
During lunch?

Or
Do you
Understand
The Chemistry work?
’Cause I don’t.

What about,
Do we have
A short day
Tomorrow?
I heard the teachers
had a meeting.

Simple
Things.

Like
That.

Would have
Made my day.

Just because
I was
Talking
To
You.
