Power

Location

Expanding, Deleting,

Saving, Repeating.

 

Try as I might,

And try with my might,

I fail to kill the world’s play,

Across my monitor’s width.

 

Expanding, Deleting,

Saving, Repeating.

 

And so I struggle on,

Hating, loving, my electronic bonds.

Wishing to switch the power off.

 

Expanding, Deleting,

Saving, Repeating.

 

Assignments due online,

Though it is the outdoors for which I pine.

 

Expanding, Deleting,

Saving, Repeating.

 

Maybe someday I can turn the power off.
