the difference between 270 and 290 is two phone calls

by jhon baker

the difference between two-hundred-seventy
and two-hundred-ninety,
is two phone calls.
paying son’s tuition for grade K,
forgetting 20 dollars raised the
red flags of poor attention to detail.
prompting immediate calls in attempt
to discern where, who, and most importantly
when the money is going to be paid.

simple mistakes are accepted.
instant correction is expected.
I wonder what the difference between
two-hundred ninety and two-hundred seventy is.

 – Hoc Scripsi

Too tired now to write anything else. Have an appointment in 20 minutes I wish I could cancel so I could go back to sleep and forget about the pain coursing through my back, hip and leg.

but I had great dreams last night.
