awake after midnight on a multi-line phone

A picture tells a thousand words so
by my count I’m dialing four and a quarter
    there’s no explanation for it neither

           LINE 1 ON HOLD
                 ANSWERING LINE 2

         [you can’t remember
                    & I’m getting a migraine
             fucking
                 stonefaced

                       Everyone is dead]

               LINE 2 ON HOLD
         ANSWERING LINE 1

  why are there bubbles in the water &
              this ghostly haze
        putting to sleep our beloved pets?

               Are we next?
