Hello – Jaqueline Buckley

Hi it’s me

Just calling because
Because—I don’t know

So
Ya

I tried out that
New Thai place
The one with the yellow awning?
I tried the chicken
Too spicy
Too much peanut oil
Peanut oil is weird
Don’t you think?
You wouldn’t think that nuts could be oils
Or that oils could be nuts
And what about Canola oil?
Is it made from cannolis?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we lived
In a world where oils could make sense
Where canolas could be cannolis
Where Thai food was free
Where there could be just you and me

I’m sorry
I’m too tired

I’m just calling because
Because—I don’t know

Remember when we went boating
And we almost lost your pet
And when we hunted haunting ghosts
Something I do regret

I—

Beep.

Hello? It’s me again
Just calling because
Because—I don’t know

I remember those times you
Bought me ice cream and my lunches too
I probably owe you my life savings
So I want to say thank you

My mind bends stiff; it throbs and pounds
My body entices me to sleep
But what I can’t remember
Is the moment I last saw you

I’m sorry
I’m too tired

So I guess I’m just calling because
Because—I miss you
