I got stuck, sometime on Tuesday,
and haven’t left the house –
The internet, a magnet, has turned
my hands to poles, pulled to make
connections, algorithmically controlled –
As if, sometime on Tuesday,
I’d become exposed
to a deadly virus which has taken hold;
Despite attempts, since Tuesday, to
will the magnet’s poles’ inversion,
block, at source, viral infection,
Still, it multiplies.
I got stuck sometime on Tuesday and haven’t left the house: arrested by a laptop, driven by a mouse.
