poetry from another dimension

the inbox

Click

it’s over

yes that and that and that

all gone

years of history

this person who no longer exists

assimilated as she was

into

a new form

morphed

evolved

(one hopes)

but her mail

still sits

congested in my

inbox

click, unsubscribe

notices of events

no longer to be attended

click click unsubscribe

sales on items

the desire for which has long ago been

abandoned

click click

those digital ideas

unsubscribe, click click

take up space

they have

a lot of weight

click, click

who knew

the power they would have

in keeping us from

moving

forward

oooooh,,,,ohhhhh…

i remember when he wrote me this

ohhh….

pause

Scroll?

Back Scroll

pause

remember…….

heaving sigh, delete, click

wings
