my dad called to tell me he liked a story I'd written - the story's name is SUCKERS
 



(copyright 2000 K. Stevens Jr.) 

call waiting 

time shares 

who cares 

about the way she walks 

or what she wears 

or what I think of 

on days like this 

when the phone rings 

loud beeping true 

and I'm on the other line 

already talking to someone 

talking to my father 

about days to come 

things gone 

items found 

fixed 

broken 

in need of repair 

who gives a flying fuck 

about call waiting 

hairspray 

lipgloss earrings 

high heels stockings and nail polish 

does she think that it matters 

all I care about is the moment 

when the phone first rings 

and I get to hear 

who it is that cares 

good or bad 

today it was my Dad 

and the call waiting 

didn't wait 

but jolted me out of context 

out of conversation 

leaving me without memory of anything 

Dad said 

except 

take care 

and 

I read the story you wrote today 

the one about sucker fishing 

and it reminded me of when I was a kid
