Early Morning Phone Call


The phone rang early this morning
too early for a sales call,
no family or friends,
unless it was an emergency.

My mind tried to predict
who and what and why
only the sound of , “Hello,”
then a click.

It didn’t matter, except,
it sounded like my sister 

who passed
a month ago. 

Her voice was clear
maybe she had to say


but then remembered 
she was dead

and hung-up instead.
