Memory Cards: Clark Coolidge Series, by Susan M. Schultz
Is the heart of poetry a stillness? At the telephone’s other end, I’m here and then she’s not. Just shut up and listen! Jimmy Stewart yells on her television.
–Have you eaten, Mom?
–How’s the weather?
–Are you there, Mom?
–I love you, Mom. I love you, Mom. I’ll call back soon.
