E-mail


      I think Emily
      would’ve liked to be
      in the twenty-first century
      writing e-mail,

      off   line
                   on   line
      all the time
      her byte sublime
      in the floppy disk
          of her mind.

      About negotiating the protocol
      she already knew it all—
      what password to call,
      and when to hang it up.
