The Text

First a short text
Quickly followed by another
Then a text with an X
What does it mean?

Girlfriends say it’s just
“Bye” to a friend
We all do it
No need to get excited.

But the men say different
The X is significant
It means something else
It wants an X back.

So I send one.


  1. Clever poem. I'm still trying to figure out all the texting abbreviations. Amazing how a single letter can mean a world of difference. Nice One Shot!

  2. It's hard enough to figure out the difference between men and women and person, but now I have to figure it out in texting also?

    Very cute.


  3. haha...careful...too much x-ing causes nice one shot...

  4. Hi Libby...still so grateful! Loved this poem. Well I thought those x's were European kisses. When I was a child we signed xoxo at the bottom of our letters. My mother said that it stood for kisses and hugs. When we wrote notes to boys in study hall ( long ago) we sometimes put xoxoxo at the bottom. I thought as you're British you were only sending kisses; no hugs.

    Cute and clever poem. Your work is always so fresh and clean. It's the way I see you in my mind..all fresh and full of hugs and kisses. Gay @beachanny

  5. Very interesting and clever... is X means a good bye too...
