[poem] Disconnect

Updated: Jan 5, 2018

I take time to buffer, to load,

to play. And with a 360 ping I might as well be dead.

People move on, I'm stuck

in motion

Three minutes

Five seconds

2 days


My cursor stills while the mouse is shaken

Words are spat but I blink.

I blink.

And bli |

"Hi Siri"

"Are there any

good movies out now?"

No answer. That's expected. But they try

once more.

A nightmare to hear, to see,

to witness. Is the utterance of three words

and a screen turned black.

Don't leave

I'd say

If only I had loaded faster.
