My phone drowned yesterday.

I did wonder how to explain your demise
as I made my way to the centre

“It got submerged.”

Nice and succinct.

Nevermind how I  usually anthropomorphize you.

Sorry, Sammy. This can’t be helped. 

They’ll think I’m crazy, otherwise. 

Just don’t ask me how. 

The young part-timer stared at me
Bushy-tailed and all
About 17

“So what exactly is wrong?”

I couldn’t lie.

“I dropped it in the toilet bowl.”

A pause.

I could see a snigger in her eyes.


She scribbled some words on a form.
