(verbatim)

Where are you now?
Yes
Now
Where are you now?
So
Yes
Come back
Come back
Right now
And call me
When you’re near
Yes
When you’re nearly here

Where are you now?

Wonderful, this snippet.

I'm trying to figure out places where you can sit, comfortably, and overhear these kinds of things, because they're funny funny.

Sounds like my friends' conversations with their errant children.

Not hearing the tone of voice makes it more mysterious and full of possibilities...

Male, suited, peremptory but quavering...

If there were no mobile phones, this would be a poem about love and anxiety, wouldn't it?

With mobile phones,one constantly hears the refrain: "Where are you now?"
