I firmly slide it into her slot
hoping to push all the right buttons.
She opens her eyes annd blinks at me
showing me windows into her world.
She comes to life and
I hear her breath
she is extremely fast this time.
I hold her hand
and drag across her face.
She knows everything,
all I do is ask.
She is my connection to the world.
When we are finished,
I pull it out of the slot.
She goes back to sleep.
I did not use protection this time.
I hope she doesn't have a virus.
Maybe I should
defragment her drive now
like a morning after
pill.

Not really my 'kind' of poetry, HJ, however I thought it was really cleverly done. Do you have similar poetry tucked away somewhere?

When it comes to computers, I am an ignoramus. Even so, I enjoyed the clever use of imagery here. Any chance someone will tell me what the object of adoration is?

This one came to me back in college when one of my suitemates said to another.

You spend so much time on that computer you may as well start fu#$ing it.

I laughed and wrote a first draft that was more literal with actual human/computer intercourse. It was clunky and didn't work. So I went with innuendo. Basically it describes how similar booting from a floppy (hehe ironic) drive can be to sex.

I hope you guys liked I will post more as time allows.

Oh, floppy disks - I remember them! And when we did everything from the C prompt. No fancy desktops with images and icons in the old days.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

This was interesting, It took me some time to actually figure out what I was reading. It was clever and different but I enjoyed it.
