When I Get to Hear from You

By CHANA PERMAN

Send a pic of the dress you’re deciding — yes or no — to buy.

And let’s see the peacock blue eyeliner

That brings out the color of your eyes.

Show me the cookies

(Even though they burned),

And the certificate of achievement

Your darling child earned.

What’s in the mango cocktail

You’ve just spotted in Whole Foods?

How is your Fitbit score?

(And report your current mood.)

Please sing for me that great song you totally adore.

How was the trip/party/event?

Looking forward to hearing more!

What’s happening in your day?

Tell me, tell me, please do.

¿It’s always a blessing and gift 

When I get to hear from you.
