When does it end?

When does it end?


The dog died

the same day as the fridge

the day the kettle element blew the power

shorting out the electrics at 98% of a program

I’d been downloading for several hours


Error followed error

error followed me

dialing 0800

thinking it was free


Calls from this number are chargeable

“SHE” said


told me to press 2

I did

and so it seemed

I was now number two

in a queue

With hindsight!

I probably should have pressed one


Fifteen choruses

of someone’s unfinished symphony later

the same voice informed me

that I was now number three in the queue


I had been virtually overtaken

I never did complete that call

so I’m not sure how it ends

although we do now have a Cat



◄ No one
