Beep, beep.
3am and 3 emails.

Beep, beep.
I soon hear the alarm from her room.

Beep, beep.
Clicking for the news as she waves good bye.

Beep, beep.
Traffic near my office.

Beep, beep, beep.
She calls but I’m busy.

Beep, beep, beepity-beep.
I’m in a conference, decline.

Beep, beep, beep.
Crap, I forgot to pick her up.

Beep, beep.
Boss needs that draft.

Beep, beep.
It’s now that I realise.

Beep, beep.
All the Ignores and Declines.
She flat lines.
