NaPoWriMo Day 11. Poem 11 - Ray, Are You OK?

In the past 3 months I have received sixteen text messages
that say the same thing... word for word...

Ray, are you ok?

For some reason these are the only messages in my inbox.

Some of them came completely out of the blue and others
are replies to messages I sent.

I do remember sending one message that said

I want you and not because I’m lonely.

almost immediately Ray, are you ok? was received on my phone
at 2.14am.

  1. Ray, I'm sorely tempted to ask you... but I won't, because you so clearly are.
    This daily dose of your poetry is a tonic, a cool breeze and a reason to look at my email and feel happy first thing in the morning. I'll be sad when NaPoWriMo draws to a close, but for today I'll enjoy today's piece. And tomorrow tomorrow's, and so on. Thanks dude.
    PS For someone who goes on a bit about SpoWo you write a mean PaPo.
