Technology Memo

This is just to update you
on conditions here:
Our wireless access points
used up their vacation days months ago,
but keep disappearing anyway.
We suspect they’ve been in Bermuda,
because when they show up and work
they are sun-burnt and wearing shorts.
The power cords you delivered last week
are frayed and send off sparks
when we plug them in. This fills our heads
with static. We’ve attached the bill for
extra hair product this requires.
I am writing to you on ordinary paper
because my computer’s screen
is all blue, again.
A color I’ve come to detest.
Also, the email program won’t open.
Its door has been locked so long that
virtual cobwebs cover the keyhole.
In short, our technology problems
come and go
like the real mice in the walls
chewing away at important wires
electric with energy.
