Wesle Dymokethe insignificant other i am going out with a mailbox on an unfashionable-looking street a hundred miles away i send cards and letters and the occasional gift and never get anything back i am having a relationship over the phone with the insignificant other of my significant other who never writes or calls or even answers the phone the insignificant other says she can't come to the phone right now promises to pass my messages along says to call back later when the machine will be on when the phone will be busy - busy - busy - busy.. i am going out whith an answering machine whose dull and predictable monotomy i know better than my own who promises to pass on my messages promises to return my calls but somehow never does i am seeing an intermittant memory of the moment i met you and wonder what you look like now and i am seeing red i am going out with the ghost of a memory of an intermittant image of how i feel when i look into your eyes and wonder when or if i will see them again and i am going out of my mind The above pieces are owned and copyrighted by Wesle Dymoke, © 1999.
