You can’t catch me today,

I’ve more power than ever before.

I can swallow you up

and change you into a chrysalis.

There is a singing in my head

that makes it hard to concentrate on

my typing.

Perhaps it is Sappho calling,

she and I are friends,

we sing together sometimes.

You didn’t know that, did you?

I will find my way through

this metal-plastic-

silver-yellow world.

It’s a maze and I have

new zest for the game.

Look for me between the piano keys,

they are yellow and need dusting.
