An old poem: Epitaph

Epitaph
by Margaret Fieland

First, second, and
third revisions,

bits
and pieces

rewritten in another
voice, scribbled
on scraps of

paper or stored in a
folder marked
:

Ghosts haunting
the poetry
graveyard.

When I die will
you be gone
forever?

I Try “Creative Calisthenics” by Terri Main

I just started reading “Creative Calisthenics” by Terri Main. Being the person that I am, I started at the beginning of the book. The first exercise called for a pack of index cards (I didn’t have any handy), but the second is “My Computer Went Crazy.” This is major fun.

So here’s my story. Stay tuned for more. If I can write them, y’all can read them.

Here’s the link to Amazon, where you can purchase a copy of Terri’s book

My Computer Goes Crazy

Today my computer went crazy. When I went to boot it up, it said, “I do not wish to boot up this morning. My data cache hurts.”

I said, “I’ll take you to the Cache Doctor.”

“No,” it replied. “I am an extensionalist, suffering from angst. You have downloaded too many extensions. I am shutting down.” Then all the little blinking lights went out.

So, doctor, can you help? I hate to see a computer suffer.
