She had the greatest voice on the phone
someone once said “a girl like that
should carry a phone with her everywhere”

I fell in love with the voice
the voice on the phone
and thought it was her

Someone gave her some of my poems
she fell in love with the poems
and thought it was me

The story doesn’t end there of course
and perhaps it would not have gone
so quickly great, good, bad, worse

If she had stayed on the phone
and I had stayed in my verse
