Blondie’s Nemesis

by Suzanne Conboy-Hill

 

Hissing, spitting, wound up, bound up, looped and tied

Into choices, their choices, I lied

To get an operator, a person

*

Someone real to feel my exasperation but instead

I get another endless list of choices

Their choices

*

Press One for Returns, Press Two for Orders

Press what for steaming, fire breathing, excoriating rage bordering on

Murderous intent

*

All our Operators are busy but we really value your custom so

Please hold

For more

Choices
