Memories

Rating: 4.0

It’s so quiet today, save a few peripheral noises
From the world outside.
Voices down the hall, indistinguishable words,
Clicks on keyboards, paper rustling,
The sound of business.

I stare at the objects on my desk
A picture of friends,
A postcard, a withered balloon, a map,
The clutter of work in process, a tangle of wires,

A phone that never rings.
