Midnight Memories


It’s midnight and in my dream

a phone is ringing

Turning over hoping to

again find that

deep dreaming sleep

It is still ringing.


Why won’t it stop?

Crawling to the surface

of awareness

I realize that ringing

Is NOT a dream


A phone call at midnight

is Never a good thing


I dread reaching

for the phone…

someone died…

someone’s in jail…

someone needs a place to crash…

a crazy friend is drunk dialing again…


I see the number and smile…

My heart quickens…

All my fears relieved…

“Hi,” I say in a sleepy voice.

“Hey, Baby!”

“I miss you,” he says with his

voice steeped in tears.

    The beginning of a story…should be anyway, Annie.
