disrupting the rate of differential, by colin james

Not unlike everyone else,
I usually wait for inspiration
by staring at the computer screen.
It nearly always arrives as
an ant or burdened fly
crawling upward unhurriedly.
I’m not often involved in conspiracy theories
but this seems a likely candidate.
I have since discovered the aftermath of food
packed into the tiny spaces
between the computer keys.
Someone has gone to a lot of trouble
to keep me in this room.
I could be out mowing the lawn
or painting the front porch columns.
Instead I am blowing air at the monitor
to get these bugs to move.
I just may need a snack
to survive this puisne barrage.
