I realized that for the moment
I will never not answer
For if I don’t answer
You will leave a voicemail message.
A message that will last
As long as I let it.

In spite of fluctuating bouts
Of self-doubt, self-hatred and self-sabotage
Exacerbated by a Rubik’s cube-obsession to self-pathologize.
At this time
I am able to extend to you
A one-time offer towards the reduction of your debt
