(714) 733-9969

I lost it today,
my religion.

Left long neglected,
so long ago.

like a sign,
on a road,
to nowhere.

like a phone booth, 
in the desert.

Do I call it, 
or does it call me.

and when i call
does it hear me?

and ring
and ring.

still i ask,
Is it the service,
or is it me.

Note "losing my religion" is a reference to the R.E.M song. It refers to losing ones temper.


This the phone number for a pay phone that once stood, in the crossroads, in the middle of the Mojave Desert.
