Call for Help

After lying down amongst the string and rubber stamps

or whatever is to hand

and sleeping the cool long line between Fridays

I remembered there’s a phone number you can call

to hear a glacier melting in real time

from anywhere in the world

which by coincidence

is where I was at the time.

I tried to call the melting glacier but

found that the glacier had been disconnected in 2008

and my doctor’s engaged tone was dripping

endlessly that half hour into

Jökulsárlón lagoon.
