… someone is typing a comment

watch out
here it comes
…someone is typing a comment
this is going to be good
a rebuttal
a rebuke
an outright name-calling
…someone is typing a comment
stand back
coming through
you can almost hear the beep beep beep
like a truck getting ready
to unload
…someone is typing a comment
come on
the suspense
it’s like an hypnotic sine wave
lulling you to sleep
you need to wake up
…someone is typing a comment
still
typing
pondering
tapping carefully
selecting just the right amount of venom
the right degree of outrage
the right shade of ambiguity
we live in an age of miracle and wonder
and still we sit
we wait
…someone is typing a comment
gotta get that fix
that low-level adrenal release
gotta watch the fight
drive slow by the accident
this ain’t no graceful origami
it’s the rip and tear of papier mache
the yank of the bandage
gotta pick that scab
one more time
…someone is typing a comment
and we sit by
idly
watching
waiting
until it’s our turn
