“Elusive Krishna – Hacker –
sending me reports of your welfare
in elevators
in the applications of prospective tenants
on licence plates
in error messages, unseen items, filenames
on baseball jerseys –
I long for the sound of your wheels outside my cabin.

Krishna – truant systems operator –
I (like an account
expired for lack of logon)
have nothing to offer you
except for the sweet sound of my voice,
_____an endless flow of written words,
credulous acceptance of the details of your avatars
laughter at your jokes, _____
love,
and nearly blind devotion.”
