My enemy the laptop.

Blink Blink

Glowing on the desk

Cursor mocking from screen

An electronic reminder of time spent avoiding

Not crafting 

Sentences 

Blink Blink

The laptop points out time sitting produces

Teacups filled and emptied

Biscuits eliminated, online “research” done

But still no paragraphic paradise

And damn few words saved

Blink Blink

Once upon a time

As stories start

I feared lack of ideas

Keyboard catatonia no forward gears

Turns out I’ve thoughts aplenty 

but yet unshaped

They buzz about

Like cracked-up bees

All energy no focus

Blink Blink

Finally, urgently the fog clears

An enemy at the gates

A greater foe than the blank screen

Hard-core, hard-faced, implacable

It’s deadline time

Blink Blink

The clock don’t stop and neither can I

Into action

Keys pound

Words blur

Clarity comes

Triumph

Hit SEND

“Never again” the promise

Blink Blink

Ooh biscuits!

Time for tea
