What did you do?

'no no i have given
to each of them
seven senses. check
check check on them, '
the maker said.

'yes but this one has
only four and this one
three and this one five, '
the checker replied.

'See whether it has been
placed too near fire
Or if fsomeone has messed
up its inner scheme of things?
a short circuit? Some mess up
the programming?
Too much of one sense
might crowd out the others.
Too much of programming
might get it all haywired too.'
'But I think it not only has
lesser sense but is walking
away totally from what it
should be? '

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
