emily and internet

hermits blog
live simply
as a tag
while sparrow
tweets
my basket holds
just
firmaments
and a link
to a list of active
verbs

words scintillate
electric letter
signs herself
m click
enter berry worlds
apple worlds

as if libraries
were made of
light
as if palaces
were scratches
etched in a prism
opening to a touch
parliaments
uploaded
as clouds
streaming
crepuscular rays

downloaded
to a tablet
easy on my arm
but smaller bundles
cram
