My objects of distraction


My attention stream careens
by objects of distraction
that have littered my screens,
from Lady Gaga tweets
to Kathy Griffin bleats,
from Andy Borowitz quips
to Technologizer tips,
from Facebook friends
to HuffPost trends,
from blogfeed roams
to the quick detour
from writing some poems
to hunks du jour.

But now all these seem
not at all lost time,
like walks by a stream,
knowing no reason nor rhyme,
become part of a scheme.
