Broken cell phone

Broken cell phone

The Bad:
Phone lost.
Panic.
Phone found
smashed in the lounge chair.
Panic.
Disconnected.
They will think
I am ignoring them.
They will think
I am angry with them.
Angry at myself,
stupid mistake,
expensive mistake.
Can’t sleep.
How will I remember meeting times.
How will I organize Sunday’s run.
How will I stay in touch with loved ones.
Rationalize,
maybe meant to get an iPhone
but iPhones are expensive.

The Good:
Rescued from being upset
by my best friend.
A nice day together.
Work out angst at the gym.
Lovely lunch at comforting local place.
Riding in seat-heated warm car
to phone store.
She is there to help problem solve
when phone company
grants no good options.
Ordered old iPhone.
Two-day shipping.
Relief settles in.
Money spent without issue.
Worth a faster phone.
Worth the ability
to FaceTime nephews.
Will be better connected.
An evening of chamomile tea
and lentil soup
and a movie with Mom.
Calm evening.
Silence from my phone is calming.
Look at photos and smile
instead of texting before bed.
I can easily wait two days.
It will be like a reunion then.
