Kathryn Rueby
CALLER I.D.
 
Caller I.D. was no doubt invented by a woman.
She was barefoot at the time,
Moving quietly through the house at midnight,
Dusting a few things, looking at old photographs,
Getting ready to curl up with a couple of dogs, a book,
And a piano sonata on the stereo when
The phone rang~
She froze in place
Daring it to ring again
While in that moment
She was transformed
Into a towering goddess
Of incredible strength
Beauty purpose meaning
~ With wings ~
And said no fucking way is he coming over here
And calmly turned the page in the book while
The phone rang on
And the phone rang on

  1. Love it. It was simple, beautiful and read like a thriller.
