Ticking, clicking, clacking, rattling and clattering
The repetitive sounds fill my head for two semesters
…And, additionally, a handful of breaks that include the clutter
A collection of chips that lay under the keys are purely addicting
A clump of units, a motherboard and drives

Times New Roman 12-point font, one-inch margins
Whack, thump, the glare of the light shocks more than my eyes

Night mode can only do so much…
But, the usefulness, the escape to a new realm at a single touch
With each click away from the heritage and art of penmanship
Only a miracle can silence the mess
The spill of a drink to put our accessories to rest
