rotary phone

like some sweet casino game

they drilled holes in a disk

attached to your face

buxom and heavy

enough i could defend my life

by you. crack some bastard

in the skull. curled

umbilical cord wrapped around

the body. receiver gripped cold

dial zero for an operator

will talk you down

until help arrives

  1. Ha, brilliant! I can still recall our house phone number from the early 1970s – ‘273’!
    It was described as a party line as each house in the terrace had the same line. So, it was not unusual to pick up the receiver and hear one of the neighbours chatting away! The protocol was to say nothing, but to return the phone to the cradle and give it ten minutes! 🙂
