birthday reflections

the iMac keyboard stopped syncing –
bluetooth almost never fails –
I knew trouble was ahead.

doctor’s appointment
quarterly check my bionics –
9 more years on the battery –
blood pressure spiked.

It wasn’t the white coat effect.
It was too much coffee – my morning elixir –
poison, the wife calls it,
caffeine constricting my blood paths.
Less coffee, more exercise. (LCME)

A new hard drive is an easy fix.
Let 4 years of data bite the dust,
the system needs a good cleaning.
All my poems and writing projects
are saved in the cloud.
