on the edge of the ledge


I didn’t mean

to miss

your last

ten calls,

please excuse my

tardy response

but you see

a big black


has befallen me

and i just can’t seem to

pick up the phone.

oh what do you mean

lance is not there?

He died?

Oh God no!


seven phone calls ago!

please forgive mrs de goveia

i really was too caught


in my darkness to

listen to the messages.


oh well


he was always

the lucky
