Title: Lap-top reflections

Lap-tops hold secrets of life.
Thoughts, reflections - sad, loving.
I fill the reflective screen;
spray alphabet and numbers with tears and laughter -
words struggling for their freedom
from my pen.

I have a slim green note-book,
a school-book with margins and lines.
Rubber-tipped pencils.
It doesn’t feel so Philistine to consign
inner thoughts to the these pages
though eventually they end up upon that screen
that reflects me as I write. It is as though my Lap-top
has gobbled me up, made me an inevitable part
of the contents of its interior -
resting in Files, Document or disk
with all the driftings of my mind;
and contents of my heart.
