Some Cyber Haikus

(Inanity of Machine and Ingenuity of Man)

the keyboard obeys
my fingers’ depress-commands
letters leap from keys

words leak from cursor
my thoughts appear on white screen
as verses in black

their vibrant lines dash
to the right margin and scroll
promptly down the page

i move-click the mouse
the pointer sprints thru pixels
the printer screeches

white paper rolls out
laced with poem in bookman-black
i pause for awhile

i hear dead silence
from mute laptop and printer
dumb computer, yes

i take the paper
then read poem title, it says:
‘some cyber haikus’.

– between computer and printer is inanity.
– between thinker and writer is ingenuity.
