A Note to Aoibheann

I couldn't hear you clearly
When I called you.
You know well how my phone is
Somewhat broken.
Too many times it's fallen or
I've dropped it
So it punishes me now with
Failing volume.

We looked at better models on
The shop-shelves
As we strolled through town today
Before my bus.
You said you'd buy a new one
Soon to suit me,
But only once you'd found a job
To fund it.

I think it was good news you had
To tell me,
And I'm sorry that I could not
Hear you clearly.
If it was news of work,
I look forward to talking
With you later.
