Millennial Poetess,

unloading her Costco cart, glances ‘bubbly nebula’

in her Facebook feed, instructs Siri to add it to a note. Poetess

googling Nuclear Waste Dumps. Poetess’s ever-open window:

Thesaurus.com (will it be region, locale, or location?). Poetess blowing

at her too-hot cup of virtual tea, wondering whether her ocean

acidification poem should be epistolary or digital. Poetess in Spandex,

contemplating focus, in Latin, means hearth. To drown out

library-tour voices, poetess dons ear buds, clicks Lullaby Radio,

resumes researching robotics.
