cut me off

Cut me off
before I say
so much foolishness
it overflows the room
and I’m chin deep in it.

waiting

There’s a bright lamp
in the window
and next to it she sits
well into the twilight hours
letting memories linger,
tear drops
on the verge of falling.

under the moonlight

Across a point
reflected unevenly
so that everything is bent
and ripples slightly
under the moonlight.

the chip

He created a computer chip
that with all the ‘write’ inputs
would tell him what to do
so that he could do nothing.
