Send/Receive

you've only been away for eleven hours
you didn't call to say you got the flowers
maybe you left
before you said you would
you always were an early riser

or maybe you were
just in such a terrible rush
to catch your train on time

i go online and give my password
and wonder why you haven't answered
the message that i sent last night
hit send/receive and check the inbox
i know it's late but i know you'll stay up
i drop a line and hope you might
hit send/receive

i know you're awfully busy
with your presentations
and meeting with
the heads of wealthy corporations
i'm sure that in between your
planes and trains and changing lanes
you could find a moment to write me

or maybe you were
just in such a terrible rush
to close the deal on time

you didn't call at all today
i'm not complaining
from getting hold of me
you seem to be refraining
maybe you left
before you said you would
you always were an early riser
