Three Poems Jaya Savige
Disconnect

Pale wireless mermaid
washed up on the shore
by bright pixeltide -

is that you darling, up late,
cold, screenblind,
perfecting your proposal?

Looking up cheap flights,
clicking anywhere
and putting it on plastic?

come, it's time to sleep.
Time to switch off, time

to close down windows.
Come, let's zip the
file and sync it to the cloud.
