‘No. 9’

A week before he passed I received a missed call from him – I was always hesitant to answer, not knowing if going in for a chat would turn out to be 3 weeks of unplanned labor. He left a message …I suspect it was just a huff and then the click of the phone, or maybe a more formal introduction with an uncertain remark about the possibility of my sleeping past 8.00am, or doing the ironing, or perhaps I was having dinner and he should be reproached for his intrusion…. I don’t know, Ive never listened to it, but I had the mobile provider secure it so that it will never disappear and so every 6 months I get a message telling me I have a call from Peter Corrigan. It sits unanswered, unlistened to, a call from Babylon.
