One Of Those Days


If something went right it wasn’t for long
after a while it seemed almost predictably
okay, you might suggest lending an aura
of propriety – or better if you’re a tragic;
but that didn’t get the plethora of things
dangling at wits end untangled, thus a new
laptop easily won the day – with aplomb
best described as freakish calamity

Amazed by new technology’s penchant for
reducing one’s solid-core history of certainty
to a farrago of keyboard happenstance with
offhand wave; passé be it to note that this
Dell Precision M6500 didn’t even have a
manual to read – albeit in Braille
