I think this is the first time I’ve tried to write a poem in years.

I’d love feedback on this if you have any thoughts on how it could be improved.

My name is blank
and I’m calling today
to discuss an important personal business matter.

Please return my call.

I’m calling today
to let you know I am here to listen
and I understand.

I understand what it is to be a stone
giving way to hammers and drills,
reluctantly yielding dark fluid
from secret places and impossible depths.

Please return my call.

Today you are the stone and I am the drill.
Tomorrow there will be new stones and new drills.

Please return my call.
