The Eye of the Tiger

1 Feb

I watch you from

the corner of an eager eye,

hopeful, loveful, parched for droplets of

approval, attention,

a wayside crumb.

You glisten,

then wink,

and evilly twinkle;

then shut shop to slumber

or only pretend.

All the while I pray for

your light to shine,

your orchestra to blare,

your rendezvous to fructify,

so you, blasted computer,

can whip up the damn internet

like it’s your bloody job

to do.
