Wireless Rain by Jasen Sousa

Wireless Rain

It is a rainy Thursday night
as almost every summer night 
has been here in Boston.

In a world where everything
and everyone is connected, my friend is missing
and out of touch, anonymous 
as a person can be in this day and age.

when he does call
it’s from a pay phone,
strange numbers common.

We are wireless in a world
full of tanglazation.

Days of calling
and asking me for time
and money I don’t have.

I miss him 

and hope that the tree
in the park is sheltering
him from some of the rain.

I hope he is wireless
from rubber bands and needles,

and is able to catch himself like
the drop of rain in my palm.
