Cell Phone Can Predict Weather or Not to Go Home (Haiku)

by Sandy M. Humphrey

snubbing me with silent cell
no pride and joy rings
signal cold front this evening


Author's Note: Usual lunchtime call missing today, mmm someone seems miffed. Barnes and Noble maybe?

I like the way one could read this poem without having seen the title and come up with a quite different interpretation. In other words, the poem sings and rings in a different voice - e.g. imagine that it was written 19th century. It still works.

Glad I finally got to read this Sandy. An excellent combination of technology and love, or maybe lost love. A lot of poetic electricity in those three little lines.
