Cyberspace: toggling my way across islands in great the white expanse



I tumbled over the side and uneasily tilt upwards
almost always just shy of toppling back over.
Brush my teeth while thinking of new posts
and e-mails and those thank-you notes
I haven’t written yet.
I toggle all day until I arrive home and yeah-
toggle all night till I tumble over sideways,
almost face downward, curl my feet round
each other and toggle in my head
till finally I fall asleep.

  2. if you toggle rather than snuggle
    you got the writer's dis ease
    but you gotta keep on toggle

  6. Hey! Toggling? In the sequence of tumble, tilt, topple, toggle, it could mean anything, but cyberspace's white expanse clinches it. Was this a riddle poem for dVerse at first? Neat stuff! (Not that I or anyone I know has this problem!)

    1. Ha, I should link it for the riddle. I'm lousy at them. Thanks for pointing out it might fit.

  7. Ah yes, I can empathize with this! Toggling seems to be a common affliction. Smiles.

    1. Thank you, Scott. I spend way too much time online, and like we like our homes, I wanted my space to feel right. I'm glad you like it here.

  9. So beautiful and so true...we wear ourselves out and never seem to be totally disconnected. I can so relate to this.

    1. Toggling, do you have multiple screens open? Jumping from site to site? Think man with remote control. lol

  11. Ah yes! I toggle with multiple screens--I haven't started dreaming that way yet though!

  12. We do need to find spaces where we might be toggle-free!

  13. Ah, toggling ...I do try to toggle when I stuck and struggle with one side of brain, which creates the poems train...then I do Sudoku and piano play....:)
