Here’s how it happened …
(the aggressive one) said,
‘’Why do you think phones wereinvented … ?’’
I looked up and stared over at Suzanne’s office
… on the other side of Carol’s desk …
into the tiny space between the edge of the open door and the
window on the far wall …
I don’t know why I fixated on that particular spot …
i stared at it wondering …why WERE telephones
invented … ?
i knew damn well they weren’t invented
so that people could be called for
work assignments … !
I was being totally over analytic
as usual …
coming up with all kinds of thoughts on the
for a split second I even saw Alexander Graham Bell
calling his assistant …
( … what was his name … Watson …? )
to come upstairs because
he had spilled some chemical on his
all of this thinking and wondering happened
within a split second but,
I guess the timing was right … you know …
one beat ….. two beat …..
the room got real
suddenly it dawned on me …
I didn’t know why in hell (!)
the telephone was invented … !
i think a confused or maybe concerned look
came over my face …
‘’wull .. I don’t know …’’ (?!)
after that all of my senses shut down completely
except my hearing … !
a wall of sound suddenly washed over me … !
you know, that high pitched cackling noise
women make when they all start laughing at the
same time … !?
don’t they call that the
or something like that … ???
the explosion of sound practically threw my head backward … !!
