Random Poem:

broken keyboard hymn

ttttttttttttttttttttttthe night stutters
a breathy sigh.
but breaths in swirling wind
sounds more like why? why?? why???
the backspace button is glistening.
last night's fast food dinner,
or watching the latest bangbus episode.
i licked my fingertips,
and bit it just hard enough
to see it bleed on and on and on
to the logic board,
beneath the keys.
hey, we're all somewhere
between rationality and emotion,
all break down,
or just broken.
i tried to press ctrl z.
it doesn't work anymore.
