Dead Numbers

The phone
numbers of
six people
who are
now dead
are logged
on my
phone.

 

If I
were still
drinking I’d
call them
drunk at
two or
three in
the morning.

 

But I’m
not still
drinking
& all
I do
is pull
up the
numbers
every week
or two
& stare
at them.

  1. Do you want my telephone number just to stare on it?
