Lines from Groundhog Day, in order and unaltered, recontextualized as an homage to the free verse of Frank O’Hara. I call it:

Meditations in a Celebrity Emergency

It’s your choice.
What’s it gonna be?

I’m thinking.

All the long-distance lines are down?

What about the satellite?
Is it snowing in space?

Don’t you have a line you keep open for emergencies
or for celebrities?

I’m both.
I’m a celebrity in an emergency.

Can you patch me through on that line, please?

Can I have one more with booze in it?

I like it here.
