Phone Call

Phone Call
Johanna M. Geiger


Too much: the morsels of questioning –

this incessant hum encouraging betrayal.

How would you know of my ever-present musings?

This moment – stolen –  twelve years of looking back plus

fifteen more spent wishing for the future.


Memories: these flecks of gold dust     barely visible and wholly insignificant alone.


Reaching out: a suspended tragedy.  How often I halt my hands from that final connection

plus – the likelihood of a response is as low as is

my actual desire to create reality.



More of my poetry can be found at Wattpad. The formatting shows up much better there.

What I’m reading now

I like to keep a stack of books around to fit my varying moods. Listed below are some titles I’m currently in the middle of:

Plus a smattering of other books in my “to-be-read” pile. Some of which have been started, some that I haven’t even turned the cover back yet. I’m hoping the holiday weekend will enable me to have a new slate of books in my pile for the start of the next week. Here’s hoping.
