    I beam from a far,
    planning like a spider,
    just how I would pin
    you with some spare
    telephone wire.

    A chord of importance.

    Twisting, turning, intertwining professionally; winding up forever in a spiral form,
    Lengthening out as far as far can get, but never growing further than the farthest it reaches.
    Falling down in a single ringlet – the colour of black, white, blue or fawn.
    Actively bouncing of its own accord, springing enthusiastically back and forth.
    A chord of importance, a chord of control,
    A chord which was functional at the time of Henry VI’s power.
    Not a musical chord but a simple telephone wire.

    Waiting on the Wire

    Oh, how I miss the beeps and squeaks,
    Of the internet's inflection.
    But no, not yet, my mom still speaks;
    I miss my dialup connection!
