Embers









My phone still rings
each Monday morning,
with the same offer
I once declined,
no longer having need
of their service,
finding a better way
to spend my time.
They choose not
to leave messages for me,
will move on to easier prey,
calling the unsuspecting
pre-pay buyer,
before his ashes
go into the sea.
