It’s Time

Brilliance a day gone by
where the phone rang
it was yesterday calling
with a recorded reminder
to set back the clock
on the table from which
it was knocked

in the deep hours of night
the voice at the other end
whispers are you there
raising the question
that haunts me even now

wondering if this
is just a pass through
to a more welcoming dimension
and 07131961 is a flight number

behind eyes closed replays
a single memory
over and over and over
and the phone rings

it is neither yesterday
today or tomorrow calling
destination has a reservation
and the still small voice
quietly says
it’s time
