I tend the mobile now
like an injured bird
We text, text, text
our significant words
I re-read your first,
your second, your third
looking for the small xx
feeling absurd.

The codes we send
arrive with a broken chord.
I try to picture your hands
their image is blurred.
Nothing my thumbs press
will ever be heard.

Carol Ann Duffy
