My Mother's Computer

The 'e' and the 'a' and the 's' keys are not only blank, they are indented
As well as the spot where my pinky touches the SHIFT key.

There is a rectangular sticky label near where my wrist sits,
it says, in purple pen, with no spaces: "wizardofozmonster"

there is usually a active skype window, that shows
an empty room with a black poster on a white wall...
or, more often, Max's face, in london.
he likes imitating the different accents.

"in-it" Max says "is what they say instead of 'like.'"

My high school english teacher,
at the school where we werent allowed to watch tv,
had a theory about 'like.'
He said we say things are "like real." not "real"
because often we are referring to something on television or in a movie,
something that didint "actually happen. " it "like, happened."
