heathrow heisted my computer haiku

~
locked me in the pen
immigration official
at heathrow airport

then he had bad news
all of your luggage missing
computer stolen

when luggage returns
by delta or TSA
never to be found

this the beginning
people who are not british
working everywhere

can count on two hands
all of the people we meet
working in england

he was an arab
immigration official
most of the others

darling fiance
genius in any language
gets me out of jail

they call it the pen
i call it airport prison
where’s my computer?

blown to kingdom come
myrtle beach or atlanta
i bet on heathrow

two hours later
you say i should buy a house
a few weeks later

you withdraw from U
take me to terminal four
my true love to three

you call the wrong place
it’s a long train ride away
he waits for hours

awake for two days
outside in the cold waiting
you page the wrong gate

both ptsd
you don’t know your own airport
gate three is not four

j’accuse

`
you began with skype
nineteen hours a day off
blaming all others

xp went bye bye
each day he fades in and out
slowly til his death

orange box blank stare
without notifications
pretend protection

and kind man tells you
you will not want to hear this
yes things will get worse

scrolling disappeared
email, the market, pontiff
a thing of the past

my favorite flaw
a pyramid of vowels
all other words blank

optometrist please
call the xp doctor stat
support ran away

my least favorite
when TACP doesn’t
appear in reader

then how will we laugh
users of microsoft ask
please let there be light

press which button

after almost 11 months 3 weeks, last night,i noticed this orange button here next to your name…normally it has numbers:the button likes to count for some reason.however last night,it appeared to have a tiny tv insde, so i clicked. instead of being able to watch tv, there were a lot of names and information.

but going back to almost a year ago. one day i noticed a picture of someone that looked like they were waving and i thought how sweet, but where did she come from. how did she appear at the bottom of the post ( she really wasn’t waving, but it was many months after this, someone told me about the percentage button). i don’t know how many months,went by before i learned this picture was lesley at bucket list saying hi. i still thought she was waving.another person appeared and he’s a defense attorney and i had to think about why…is he trying to scare me, intimidate…here i am writing about sociopaths and murderers in florida ,want them imprisoned, change the laws, put them under the jail… maybe i should stop, but then i decided he probably really cares about justice and is just doing his job.

how did these tiny people boxes just appear. i think it was november ,when i realized other people were here and you could read what they wrote.only ten months to figure out something : that’s fast for me.sometimes it takes 3 years, 10 years…i said the word thilthy until i was 18 and someone said what? it’s filthy.it was exactly as a stewee / brian cool whip moment.what did you say ? cool WHip. much like sitting at the piano when i was 5 ,waiting to compose like wolfie amadeus mozart,for years, i’m waiting for a button that categorizes to appear.
a few weeks ago, i started a new page for bob’s burger specails, thinking all would just magically appear on that page. they did not.

when i discovered the search box button,i typed in the word snow and sethsnap appeared with lovely photographs of snow.the reason i left northern va for winter. but you can actually see beautiful snow and breathe inside. what will they think of next.apparently a lot of other people had been here the entire time.

the like button sometimes does not understand a fingers press. it just goes around in circles, but i found out this is not my fault. scott said sometimes people with internet explorer cannot click.

no, it isn’t just here. friday i wanted to sell wendy’s stock online, but there was no box or guess what -button…it had been there for the past 5 years , but it disappeared.

some day i will discover where this button is that tells people things like , what the word of the day is….i know it can’t be peter griffin’s : bird is the word. it’s a type of prompt button that tells you what to photograph, what contest to enter…yesterday i saw someone speak about a new yorker contest .i remebered when i was 10,11 & 12 and i would always buy a new yorker to take on the plane ,when i flew to palm beach from s.c.my brother would leave work and come to the atlanta airport and walk me to the next plane. i was smart when i was little.i would have understood buttons. what happened.
