Because nothing takes hold,
I build a tiny box, fence it over
with wires and bells until I have
a new kind of robot that won’t
do my chores but will buzz
a little bit, and chime.


For Open Link Night at dVerse Poets. Also, please read the post right before this one — especially the last paragraph — and let me know if you’d like to participate.
