#2,597 There is more to know

Mike Bell/ January 20, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

There is more to know after this time
& I would swipe left with that armour
of hindsight –
we share disasters & all
our summons of thoughts –
I can plot
our conversation
[as if a map –
my life
of ever less meaningful lines] –
A man
talks –
his hands-free chat broadcasts
across this cafe –
no hangover here
few other light grazers look across to
his loud chat –
his builder-voice rough
above snipes of mellow ladies seated
nearer to me –
but I am alone with this
phone & poke-types to re-confirm my
being here –
in this time –
swiped right.
