He Wasn't Dead

Word in the gossip pool:
he lost it, 

couldn’t be trusted, 
barely hanging on, 
wishing he was dead,

but when I called

he sounded great,
clear headed, compassionate,
and completely involved.

Better to stay in touch one-on-one
then to rely on family gossip
to fill the gaps

and all it took 
was one 
phone call.
