On my computer there are always dozens of them
open and waiting to be opened
from silly shortcuts and apps the men in my life
They try to contain the flashes that shoot out from my body
that refuses to be organized—
to straighten my limbs, limp like my Pee Wee Herman
doll sitting, staring, on a shelf.
Yesterday I crossed his legs, left over right
and his heavy head tilted in the opposite direction
to counter the shift—
he still kept his balance.
What if my laptop is a Playhouse?
It’s mine isn’t it?
Heh! Ha ha ha haa haa!
