1. The Laptop

She can't go to sleep now.

Eyes tired, she should be dreaming, but no

She is captured in the hold of the laptop.

 

She can't go to sleep now.

Her fingers dart over the keys like

A fish darts over pebbles.

 

She can't go to sleep now.

There are others awake.

They talk to her and she replies, quicker than a bolt of lightning.

 

The laptop's screen flickers

Blue light infiltrating

The depths of her head

 

She can't go to sleep now.

Someone in New Zealand is upset

Because  their cat has died.

 

She can't go to sleep now.

A person in Canada has just

Liked her comment.

 

She can't go to sleep now.

She can't go to sleep

She can't go to

She can't go

She can't

She....

 

The laptop's red light winks at her in the darkness.
