neptune’s telephone

i’m gonna downsize
to a palace
i can carry on my back
givin’ up my 
landline
gettin’ off the fast track
breakin’ up
my shell collection
scatterin’ it all a’round
on several sunny beaches
that’s where it’d all be found
so if you’d like
to reach me 
or just leave me alone
grab a conch
and ring me 
on neptune’s telephone
