Alexa, What Is One Plus One?
‘I think you know the answer to that one.’
Because I would not, could not stay calm
or reasonable, full of fact-based evidence…
Because instead of all the answers
I had questions of my own…
Because I stamped my feet at injustice
and cried noisily at films
(quietly into my pillow at night)…
Because he asked questions he already knew the answer to,
just to test and tease and lecture on
till touch has gone, unless it’s right swipe…
Because who wouldn’t rather be a hammer than a nail?
…he bought Alexa as a Christmas present for himself.
