Lay for the Day 7th
anniversary of the first transatlantic telephone conversation, between
New York and London, in 1927.
Stories from the Heart
When you phoned me last night
from some deep dreaming
your voice nearly took me off my feet
right then and there, standing
barefoot on the floorboards in the empty light.
Though you were miles across
the midnight sea
I dreamed and I believed and saw
two people kissing tenderly
somewhere dark and electronic,
between the buzzing cables under ocean.
