This Poem Needed You

This Poem Needed You
If I'd been home
I would have read you this;
instead I pondered
the next morning on
the electric tones of
querelous mystery trembling
claiming you needed a poem
in your voice from my
answering machine.

This poem needed you claiming
you needed a poem,
the machine answering,
and your voice in my form
claiming a poem needed you--
so I couldn't have read you this;

Yet the electric query,
the mysterious claim
querelous in a machine
is the poem you needed;
you'd have missed this poem
of your mystery if
the machine hadn't answered
and I'd been home.

if you'd been home, I think I would have joined you in the room.
