Tap, tap

Wandering eyes
Search but never settle.

Click, click

Attention! Attention!

Sluggishly slow and completely absent
Of mind and body,
Desperate for a distraction; chills and sweat-
I cannot function
Breathe, live frivolously
Until my eyes can just focus!

Blah, blah!

Alert! Alert!

A winged horse bursts through
The windows; unnoticed and ignored
By the faceless drones,
Eyes glued to the glowing screen.
But I notice.
For I am too distracted, too different
From the others.

I follow the winged horse,
Jump on its back
And close my eyes
as I laugh.
