Do I believe in ESP?
When you asked, I laughed and said,
“ESP? I dont’t even believe in CIA.”
So maybe it wasnt’t such a good joke.
But don’t you see …
I believe in ESP so much
I’m afraid to say I do.
I believe that when you are away
You know the times I’m frightened …
Or why would you call just
At the moment
The frantic, unsaid call for help is sent
From my mind to yours?
Why would you say,
“At three o’clock today
I thought of you.”
Does the long arm of coincidence
Have a short life?
Can you believe that you and I
Are a state of mind?

My husband is away for the weekend, visiting his folks. The house will be quiet tonite. I miss him already.
