「horizontal call」是何意思?

請教各位先進:

一段英文,不知如何解讀,有請各位先進指教:

「 He'll be in pain until it's time for him to make the horizontal call from a brass-handled phone booth-which won't be long if he keeps slurping up oral morphine.」,其中「horizontal call」是何意思? 另為何要從「brass-handled phone booth」?不解!

    其中1. 「horizontal call」是何意思? = death call, when I die, I will kick the bucketand lay horizontally.2.「brass-handled phone booth」?= almost all caskets/coffins have brass-handle (to show off how rich I was) andsmall in sizes just like phone booth. So, many call them “phone booths”「 He'll be in pain until it's time forhim to make the horizontal call from a brass-handled phone booth-whichwon't be long if he keeps slurping up oral morphine.」=她在這樣一直吃口食蔴啡要下去的話 會一直痛而且很快就要死了!
