The Yellow Telephone Booth

The Yellow Telephone Booth

The Yellow Telephone Booth
Now a stand-alone monument
A lot of talk and carried-away gestures
Concealed like a visitor’s book
People wanting to be wired now
Hold each other in their pockets (without wires)
Coveted glances once upon a time
Worn off the mixed yellow tint
Who knew that nostalgia is a thing of the past

Hour 17

  1. This strikes such a chord! Our red telephone boxes have almost disappeared as we, too, ‘hold each other in [our] pockets’ and move away from the magical time of walking into a box to call someone. Yes, nostalgia is, indeed, a thing of the past!
