This Rock, My Earth and Me
my Goddess entwines
love and the kind
of encouragement
worthy of Thor

on a pedestal of pure
Athenian marble 
she inscribes 
my tablet 

chipping away
a bit everyday
the imperfections
are revealed with time

molding this rock
as malleable clay
with the hands of a sculptor

and with the patience of Job

The Tablet App
She waited and waited for her birthday
When a computer tablet made her day
So she looked at the world scenes
Becoming her favourite thing to hold her dreams

Each day she carried it around
And she couldn’t put it down

Premium Member My Time Machine
My chair, 
at times over 
the past twelve weeks
my prison cell. 
Seven weeks more 
before my sentence
is completed. 
But today,
my chair is going to be
my time machine.

Not flashy and gaudy,
with a Christmas display
of flashing, colorful lights,
nor as threatening as that

What did we do with lonely laxative; 
We would be giving it to a relative; 
Create a storm, 
In tablet form,  
And now a loose life he loves to live.

Cool Fever
This fever starts without chill:
it does not sneeze, cough,
nor are there shivers, shakes.
Drink, tablet, witchdoctor all powerless 
against this most intangible malady.

It hovers like butterflies,
wings dancing. Floating air
weighed down in heartbeats,
expectant. A dull ache.

Fatigue from guessing,
rash by touch.
Love is catching...Read More

...It was from an old colleague of mine,
in southern Russian working a new dig,
of Proto Indo-European tribes,

In the silence of morning
where the child’s still snoozing
and the Christmas pine’s dark
and I don’t yet have coffee to lift

In the buzz of refrigerator and heater
mostly my eyes scan the quiet room

My First Computer
By: Tom Wright

My first home computer,
Was a number two lead pencil.
It’s only function,
Was as a writing utensil.

It could refresh, or delete,
and would even print.
But when applying too little pressure,
It prompted my eyes to squint.

It had sharpened graphite on...Read More
