The Phone Intransitive

a sly comfort phoned
in the afternoon
how’s it goin’

a vague sense of loss phones
in the morning | mouthful of toothpaste
where’ya been?

the air calls at lunchtime | the air
is in the middle of things
did you get my message?

a dream phones in the night
a dreamer answers | a sleeper
you won’t remember this

in the dream | a phone
I answer | hello
I had this dream last night
