A simple pay phone, not the newly improved cell phone or Blackberry.
Not even as appealing as a home phone or a cordless phone.
But a simple pay phone, at the intersection of two streets;
Streets that thousands of people walk on every day, streets that gum are carelessly spat on, streets that sometimes seemed to never end.
And there at the corner sits a simple pay phone. A quarter to use and a dime for an extended conversation.
And who has spoken into them, you ask?
A woman about to deliver a baby, a young woman talking to her fiancé, a businessman making last-minute deals, or even a simple conversation between sisters perhaps?
If these phones had ears, imagine their knowledge.
And if they had mouths, imagine the secrets to be told.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to.

I never really thought of a pay phone this way--innovative and well-done. :]
