A Poem by Alexis Pena (Goco)

I dialled your number... https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/aka-ms-placed/


I dialled your number and called you about an hour ago
it appeared to me that you were not interested in answering
I was glad that you did and we got to talk

you remembered how I want to finish some chores
and reminded me to do so, including the trip to the post office 
I need to make to pick up the package

you refreshed my memory of your plans for the day
and how unhappy you are about the busy day ahead
I'd like it better too if you did not have to, 
and rather spend the afternoon with you

we rambled on the line about the television program I was watching
and how the plot is boring and how there are too many 
commercials and you added that the movie industry is going 
stale and how you have not seen a great film in much too 
long and then I agreed

Now you are here, in the middle of noon contrary to what you 
told me that I presumed as your schedule and it seems like
every thing we talked about before seeing you in person was 
untrue, not any plans for the day and you, very excited 
about making some plans, and you also mentioned what a 
great flick you saw last week and asked if I was interested in 
picking a movie to see of all the great flicks released now, 
unlike I thought you said in our conversation when I 
dialled your numbers

I responded with uncertainty and ignoring the inconsistencies
I guess I am hearing voices or imagined something and 
talking to myself alone, next time I talk to you I'll make sure 
to use a telephone and device, and not validate our mental 
exchanges throughout the day, but I know I will miss it too much

I had to listen to it twice to get all the nuiances, but I think I finally got a handle on it. The computer voice as a bit rough and hard for me to understand. As I interpted the poem the guy got one set of impressions over the phone and a different set in real life as if he had been talking to himself. He preffered the coversation over the phone (that didn't really happen.)

I like the dynamnics you set up between the two "converstations". The background music worked very well too.

Great concept. The voice selection bothered, then intrigued me. The computer's reaching into a higher pitch range for emphasis was VERY perceptive and a nice, artistic touch.

The background music was great. A little Hitchcocky. Your composition?

As for the writing -- A day in the life. But you said....didn't you say...I thought you said...

Never mind.

Fun. Thanks for introducing yourself to me.
