But Never Did

My phone rings.
Spam Risk.

Which means it’s mom
calling from the other side

to talk about a photo
of me when I was young

and my rubber band fueled
propeller balsa wood airplanes.

Sometimes I answer
in an effort to extrapolate

the total number of subjects
she meant to speak with me in life.
