Sepia Tone on the Telephone

I sat in my car
parked and staring at a hill
the narrator told me the saddest story
a story of complete failure

in retrospect
I’m completely unsure if it was sincere
but in that moment
I had very little doubt
and it made sense

while seduced
in my dreamy thoughtscape
the light turned on
a very blue light

curious
I got out of the car and started to move towards it
at first excited, but eventually screaming
how important it was
blissed and gone

my mistake…

woke up in a haze this morning
not one hundred percent sure
if I’ve been paying full attention

I think I long for a dark night
in my dark car
with a dark voice
who may or may not believe what it says

I want sepia tone on the telephone.
