phone call

I called her last night to talk
she said, don’t call, I don’t want to hear your voice again
so I didn’t say a word
just kept the phone on my ear and heard her cry
she sobbed for minutes to no end until my ear started to burn on the cell
so I put on my headphones
Simone, I said
let’s try this again
she didn’t answer and today
I think her battery is dead
sorry, the number you have reached is unavailable
