Car doors slamming shut. Background noise.
I hear my pulse instead of your voice.
Sorry. It’s just louder.
Today is autumn. Leaves change colors.
They fall. I fall. You called.
My phone was dead, though.
That’s why you’re here.
That’s your excuse, anyway.
Street lights turn on. Illuminate the sunset town.
But I couldn’t see you in daylight, either.
Sorry. I’m probably just blind.
I’m sure you’re beautiful.
