Telephone

Published on Jul 2, 2020

I was trying to find a poem.

It's strange. I have two people, and I can find them by name. But when I try searching their daughter I have no idea how.

I know with the internet you can find things like who is Jane Doe's Daughter so I gave that a try. But these people aren't famous enough.

I remember some feelings, but not the exact words. The feelings I have are linked to words in my head, but these must not be the correct ones, because when I search them on the New Yorker the poem doesn't show.

I also searched by her parents' last name. And there's many many articles. Someone popular in politics must share their name or something. But no where was there a poem.

I remember recreating this poem in my head until it got drowned out like sounds in a game of telephone.
