You called me with a wish.
The line was broken, interrupted.
Your children were in the car
Behind you, concerns unspoken.
I knew you could not call again;
My mind is a radar for sadness.
An apocryphal fog followed,
Thick as a Polkovnik’s moustache,
A fog for causing shipwrecks,
In any event, I became mute
Until I met my nephews again.
