Family: Halting My Velcro-Mind With Sticky Stuff - Poem by Margaret Alice

I cannot live like this, only want
to take a photograph with your
new yellow camera – follow the
instructions, change the settings,
customize; I lose interest

Want to open a link recommended
by a friend, Installation Instructions,
help troubleshooting – no, I come in
peace, content development - what? -
visit security center – where?

Click install now button automatically
download – no such button visible
anywhere; instructions for tar.gz;
what is Targiz – son of Tarzan? -
.rpm: Ripim – Rip Van Winkel?

A YUM repository – a Yum-Yum such
as a dumb giant like Alifanfaron? – and
where is the button, the magical button?
I cannot live like this, nothing done in
one simple step, everything

Comes in fifty questions and sixty
explanations, halting my velcro-mind
with sticky stuff, stopping the process
before we even started, I’ve had

    Excellent poem! ! ! ! I love your big words! ! ! Jou goed kan oor en oor gelees word en uitmekaargehaal word - nou DAAR is goeie voorgeskrewe werk vir matrieks! Vir my is die 'velcro-mind' 'n goeie beskrywing... jou 'mind' is oop om dinge te ontvang, vas te heg vir 'n oomblik, weer te los... soms meer permanent... velcro kan oor en oor gebruik word en dis 'n baie maklike, sterk 'adhesive', en dit 'sticky stuff' voeter alles op! Great! (Report) Reply
