DC Poetry: Conference Calls

phone keys.jpgWords by Rebecca Rouse, styling by Juliet Vedral


they’re like,

ok tell us your ideas,

group of people who have never met

and can’t see each other

and then there is silence


i am still not 100%

who these people are

who convened this call

i just said something

now there is silence


“do these dates work for you?

let’s go around the call”

ugh nobody knows who will talk

so nobody says anything



“did we just lose all of you on the call”

i said she should email it

in the long silence

i heard someone drop off the conference line

bee boop
