The Digital Age……

My Home

I live in a small Southern suburban apartment
and it could be wiped off its hilltop by a hurricane
and I wouldn't care. It's just where I sleep
and keep my stuff. I would miss the heirlooms
and library of poetry books

but my home is this laptop. Booting up,
is like inserting the key to the front door,
icons arranged on the desktop with Feng Shui,
data arrayed in tidy directories.

Technically, since I upgrade the hardware
every few years, the laptop is just the house
and the data is my real home.

I don't live in the clouds
but my backups do.



My take on it…
