An old-fashioned, rotary dial phone rests on a grey background. Its speech bubble reads: “At least you could find me!”

You check on the counter
and look in your purse

You feel down the sofa
and take time to curse

You clear off the desktop
and look in the drawer

You pull back the bedspread
and study the floor

You’re starting to freak out —
it couldn’t be far!
