Following The Light with Laptops



I carry the computer down the stair


Morning light is with the sun.

I seek the opposite of dark, a zone

Of something I cannot define.


Another room.

Before, I saw the lake outside,

Now it’s the trees.

The sun is hiding as

I hit the keys.

Something bright comes out,

Thanks to the light.


Now it’s night.

I definitely

Need to find another space

On which to place the laptop,

Tabletop my closest hope.


On my knee

I watch TV.

(It’s not that I am on my knee,

But you, my white computer


Anyway, I multi-task.

Don’t ask about the quality.

I’ve fetched a plate of soup.

I’ve put the laptop next to me,

Editing and looking at a mystery

(I love them too)

Having written, edited and checked the mail,

Googled stars I find enthralling –

God I’m superficial.

Yet I must confess,

It is

A satisfying (out of meter) life

After all.
