Dial Tone

Hello, please leave a message

after the tone.

Delicious voice fountaining from my phone

lets me know no one’s home. Supposedly.

Coded, recorded, and lacking a visage

This digital talker with no body

could sweeten a page in my blindfolded story. I tell him so. By time limits eaten

even he has hung up on me.

Please salvage this message buried unseen

inside the malicious phony tone.
