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.
