1-800-HOTLIPS
mixed media on paper
12″x18″

call the number

if you dare

up from slumber

drop all care

get it right

don’t hesitate

don’t take all night

don’t start too late

who will answer

can you know

miss or mister

high voice or low

do you dare

to call the number

bring the player

into your chamber

hesitate

a moment more

you won’t find fate

at your front door
