YOUVE GOT MAIL

I must begin it's
not a sin to be obsessive,
and also compulsive--
We're the movers
and shakers,
the deal breakers
though we didn't sign up
to be a hiccup
in the psychiatric ward.
Never ordinary,
it goes with the territory
of being a poet.
To no one do I owe it,
this language luggage,
the synaptic baggage
that sends me voices,
and other choices.
Cool text messages
in the silence come
from the poetic home
where the mind is free
to speak to me 
'sans' cellular phone.
Just me and my muse
who likes to amuse
in the silence I seek
to send me word-speak, 
or phrases next,
amazing me with her
choice of the texts.
The mind was here 
with singular psychology
before technology.
