3 Minutes

Our conversation was brief.



I wish it had been longer.

And had it been longer,

I'm sure I would have wished it longer still.



We hadn't spoken in ages.

-A year counts as an age, correct? -

I'd love to hear the story of how you chipped your tooth.

Our conversation was not short enough for me not to notice.



But our conversation was brief.

I wish it had been longer.

And had it been longer,

I'm sure I would have wished it longer still.



There wasn't enough time to ask you about your life.

-I'm not sure if you would have cared to ask about mine. -

There were only minutes to reestablish what had taken considerable time to build.

- Maybe time has left it too decrepit to save -

We are not Rome, but I would've liked the day.



For our conversation was brief.

I wish it had been longer.

And had it been longer,

I'm sure I would have wished it longer still.



Even 24 hours seems minimalistic

- With all the questions I have to ask, all the adventures I'm sure you've had -

Perhaps I'm just greedy.

- Perhaps I'm just human -

I hope you've been well - you look well.

I ran out of time to ask.
