The Phone Book (first in my books series)

The Phone Book

Flipping thru for the finding,
the town is placed where it’s easy.

people, professions, parties.

Maps have streets that fall into the crease,
fingers push down to extend.

Yellow pages are circled spots.

To return to, or use for rings.
Local call, the business is theirs

they book from this one, standing out

bold and unbusy connection, a high light.
Alphabet, but not soup on the kitchen counter,

this is thick as next to your own blood.
