At Ease

I always say I love you, too,
and never say “goodbye“,
whenever I’m on the phone
hanging up the call
with whoever I’m talking to.

Even if the declaration is not said
because I barely know the stranger
on the other end,
there the words are,
tattooed on the back of my tongue.

Patient soldiers standing at attention,
prepared for the command, at ease.
