Curve Ball Came Back and Hit Me
One day I got tired of it all
Shouted out the truth
slammed down the phone
Our next conversation
which would never have occurred
in any world where logic has a place
ignored the previous one
so thoroughly that I wondered
if I had hallucinated it.
You have to admire such a stubborn refusal to hear
what you don’t want to hear
though not when it’s
