How To Make Friends - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

today is the day I have decided
to be productive,
out of the phone book
I randomly select names
and call them, pretending
I’m giving them a prize,
from a radio station
eventually I stop because
I forgot that I can’t block
my phone number
from caller ID
and I’m getting calls back now.
I confirm the prize and lay silently
answering every call
because the voicemail has my
name on it.
