another night spent
with computer problems
Windows Brand
hunting
for data;
she’s out there sleeping
kids put away

she waits,
earlier
I’m sure
by her screen
writes a note,
as I think,
no words
from
me

She’s worried
perhaps
about me,
rather than
for her health,
staying up
this late

Won’t hear
my voice say
but she’s amazing,
shedding, spreading
more care
and good will
upon me
than I think
I deserve.

Haven’t talked to her
all day, computer
issues,
but
I had 5 spare minutes
could’ve dialed
then.
Yes
I could’ve
but problems
prevent that notion.
I have to scan
motives
deeper.
