If I had a telephone cord

I look like I’m talking to a lover
if I had a telephone cord
id be twirling it and looking up
into the ceiling

“Ok, well, I’m sorry I couldn’t be there
for your birthday, I’m glad you had fun.
I love you so much.”

“Ok, hun, I love you too,
I’m glad you’re doing
what you need to do.”

“Ok, I love you.”
Then I realize
I said that already
but I can’t say it enough
to my dear, old friend.
“I love you, too.”
She says, again.
