Unknown Callers


I let unknown callers

ring and ring,

their messages can wait,

as I'm less available

than I used to be.

Before my sleep,

I turned my phone 

to Airplane Mode,

letting my dreams take me

wherever they might go.

Now I know

silence works better than talk,

for whatever answer

the caller thinks I have

can be clearly heard

in the voice I left behind,

asking they leave a message

I will never find.
