Anybody else frustrated?

My call goes to voice mail
and disappears,
never to be answered.
Is there a place in outer space
where voice mails gather
to enjoy their reward
for ignoring calls?
And is this elite group
joined by e-mails
left unread
and then deleted?

  1. Great poem Mary! I guess it's easier for some humans to ignore other humans when the contact is less direct. Sad. If there is such a place in outer space, it's getting bigger and bigger.
    Thanks for capturing a frustration I share.
