Seeing my great fault

Through darkening blue windows

I begin again

The Tao that is seen

Is not the true Tao, until

You bring fresh toner.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

The Web site you seek

cannot be located but

endless others exist

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Stay the patient course

Of little worth is your ire

The network is down

- - - - - - - - - - - -

A crash reduces

your expensive computer

to a simple stone.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

There is a chasm

of carbon and silicon

the software can't bridge

Rather than a beep

Or a rude error message,

These words: "File not found."

- - - - - - - - - - - -

Serious error.

All shortcuts have disappeared

Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
