An image poem

Here's another quick image. I seem to be in a melancholy mood just now:


Disconnect


She wants to share her loss
With friends from long ago
And so she calls their number,
Held in long-term memory.
“I’m widowed now,” she practices.
“My husband died in autumn.”
Recorded voices stop her:
The number’s disconnected.
