Is it true? No more phone booths?

What should one expect—

    —the first telephone concern?

    —the home company?

    —the first lists?

    —the automatic dial?

    —the highest mark for good service?

    —a random gathering
        of people listening to stories
        about who lives in the great cities?

    —a more representative group
        lined up for protection
        from the elements or privacy?

Coins or calling card,
sitting at home
looking at pictures
of pay phones
on the other side
of the world.
