Holding on – NaPoWriMo 26

“Your custom is important to us. Please hold”.

You didn’t buy milk,

So my coffee is black,

And my hair is still wet,

But I’m holding on.

“Your custom is important to us”.

Next door’s dog is barking

And you didn’t buy milk,

And I’m doodling pictures

Of cages and flowers

And I’m holding on.

“Your custom is important to us”.

That dog is still barkin

And I’m wondering where

You went off to today

With that bag on your back

And you didn’t buy milk

And the kettle’s back on

And I’m holding on.

“Your custom is important to us”.

I wonder if you

Are trying to call

But the phone is engaged

Because I’m holding on

And you never bought milk

But maybe you think

That the milk doesn’t matter?

And that dog is still barking

And my mobile is dead

And I’m drinking black coffee

And I’m holding on.

A poem of repetition for NaPoWriMo. Nearly there.
