memento #8

when I lose a perception of myself
I call my voicemail and listen
to my voice.

sometimes I leave a message too.

but I will never call you,
you will answer the phone and say,
“oh, it is you. how do you do?”

“yes”, I’ll reply, “it is me”.

yet, you won’t mention my name,
leaving me misplaced.

“doing alright, if I may”.
