Hang Up

Don’t let her speak to you that way

In what I thought was profound and

sound advice to one so much younger than myself


But I confused her all the more


I don’t know what it means

She said to me, hesitating,  hoping not to offend


It means what it says, I said


It just doesn’t compute, there are no pictures

in my mind to explain this phrase, she offered


I stood there not getting that the image

I could see, existed only in memory, for me


Press off, a red X
