Speaker Phone

"Hello?
Hey, Shannon,
where are you?"
"At running club."
"You are?
Where?
Oh, by the sign in table?"
"Yep. Hey, Maddie, Bri,
wave!"
"Oh... Oh!
Wait...
I see a bunch of people
waving.
Which one's
you?"

Which one's me?
I'm the one with
the cell phone,
talking to you,
looking at you
in
the window
of you mom's PE room.
Me
with the long blonde hair
staring at you and your
confused-ness,
wishing yyou'd come out
to
where we (I) are (am).

I laugh,
"The one waving,
holding
the cell phone up
way high.
You're on speaker phone!"
"Cell phone...
Oh!
Okay,
found you.
Hey, Andrew,
put this thing on speaker phone.
...
Oh, wait,
nevermind.
Hey, we're coming out.
Bye."

And here
I thought speaker phones
only pick up
on what you
say
out loud.
