By Henry Lombino

It is late.
The clattering letters ring through the house
as I smith this memo.

I choose my words with care,
molding each one into it’s line
so they are smooth to the ear

I add color to my work,
italics, and bold
in order to embellish my design.

and so I hit the send button
and let my messages set sail into the void.
I smile, satisfied,
not knowing what I have done.

The next morning,
I stare into the screen, uncomprehending.
My morning tea shakes in my hand.

How could this have happened,
I whisper to myself again and again
as I quickly pounce on the keys
wondering how I will fix this.
