Byte

hyper-
focus
is an art
i slip into
words
into screen
until
i am
nothing. . .
nothing
but blinking
cursor
nothing
but task
decoded
into nibbles
into bytes
i swim free
i dread
interruption
disruption
yanks me rudely
violently
back
into
body
no longer
able
to block out
to ignore
this wrecked
vessel
excruciatingly
aware
full bladder
burning thirst
unending
ache
in every
minute
joint
ceaseless
pain
