Returning The Call

A friend you lost touch with from college
   Left you a message last Fall;
And now you must live with the knowledge
   You never returned the call.

Our lives are shot through with distraction,
   Then death hangs a sign: ‘To Let’.
Now, which in this stack calls for action—
   Which shall I live to regret?
