You called me from the airport, about to board
for Far East trip,
   to say
you wished I could
see the place decked out, Olympic glory on
its way.

            Possible interpretations – 
#1: I wish you could be here.
#2: I wish you
  could come.
#3: I don’t know how
to say goodbye, take care.
#4: What is   
           happening here?

I considered each as silence filled space between us
and my heart ached
at your absence
and a growing connection, undefined, that spanned it.

            Possible interpretations – 
#1: I wish I could be there.
: I wish I
   could go.

#3: I don’t know how
to say goodbye, take care.
#4: What is
           happening here?

My stomach turned, spiraled downward and I clutched
the receiver
   like a
lifeline, a lump
in my throat and heart beating out a message
it could

Not speak even if my mind acknowledged truth.
I love you. I
   love you.
I love you.
care. I wish I were there. I love you. Please,
take care.

Loved the way you did this one. Ty for sharing
Reviewed by Carmen Ruggero
I love what you do with formatting. Kate is right, it gives a strong visual sensation, and what happens is that we see the moment, consequently feel it. The tension is clear. All the possible interpretation going through the narrator's mind, yet at the end it simple means "I love you... take care". I really enjoyed reading this.

SHEER BRILLIANCE! As usual, your unique formatting of your work gives a visual excitement and adds to the interpretation of the poetry. Stunningly "simple" in its expression, yet speaking and expressing volumes that is complex underneath the veneer. I'm glad that others' minds summersault at high speed like express trains - even during the most "uncomplicated" levels of communication! Some of us - if not most - have antennae that are ALWAYS outstretched and on the alert! Enjoyed this immensely. TY Kate xx
