“The Ubiquity Of The Need For Love” by Ronald Koertge.

I leave the number and a short
message on every green Volvo
in town.

Is anything wrong?
I miss you.
574-7423

The phone rings constantly
One says, Are you bald?
Another, how tall are you in
your stocking feet?

Most just reply, Nothing’s wrong,
I miss you too.

Come quick.
