Mercury in Retrograde (For Terry)

By Francis Scudellari

Phone's not working again …
Mercury is in retrograde.
Huh? What's that, a Greek myth?
No, it's the planet, not the god.
So then what's retrograde?
Mercury is moving away.
Oh, it's astronomy?
No, not quite, more astrology …
Planets affect my phone?
Cell phones, satellites, even us …
Technology breaks down?
Communication's difficult.
It's always difficult.
True, but now more than usual …
Sometimes, I don't get you.
Right, that's what I mean exactly.
