To Bed

Linda M. Barrett

Itís one in the morning
and Reed and Malloy on ďAdam-12"
Want me to stay around
and watch them catch more criminals
Reed may be cute in
his crew cut 1970īs flair

But
My brainís still on overdrive
because itís addicted to the Kindle
the Words Plus Game droid
wants to beat me again
because he feels superior to
a nitwitted human
whom he likes to throw
bad letter tiles to
and stack the odds against me
in our constant battle
of the vocabularies.

My eyes burn and ache
from a long day of bagging groceries.
The soles of my feet
pound from standing all day
in front of a cash register

I need to climb the stairs
pull off my work uniform
before the Kindleís batteries
wear down
Like I do.
