the space between us

DSC_9017Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you.
Using the phone is a very unnatural way to talk to someone.

knot
these tangles

barbed wire
could comb through

the custody
of no-man's land

a dial tone
on hold

tapped dry
of sign language

..
...

now you say you've gone
wireless

and hang up 
the anchor

coiled
around your fingers

yet you dial
1876

but still 
there is no answer

when you call
