In Just a Few Words

I write texts
those impersonal notes
that we toss off to say
Where are you
I'm waiting at the restaurant
Want to catch a movie
I'll be late
Texts for me are bits
of information
A quick way to stay informed
Emails are longer
more detailed, perhaps
more personal
I prefer longhand
without the quick send
but I'm willing to adjust
to you wanting texts
those short notes
often with attached
symbols, internet
notations that shorten
the need for words
lengthening the gap
inviting a smiley face
to be a third party
so I'll send a text
add a picture
and wait
for a response
