“Breathing” / Memorable Fancies #1118

[“My phone is tapped. / I wish to call the police.” – John Ashbery]

     But I don’t have to call; I just pick up my phone and the police are there, quietly breathing. I think the breathing might be automated – something added to their app to make the public e-thorities seem human. I say “Hello, I’d like to report…” and the voice says “Yes, sir, officers are approaching your door as we speak.”

     After a moment there is, once again, breathing.
