Computer Parts

by TSI25


in function and execution
glorious in scheme


or perhaps nostalgic

of numb times spent
in the silent humming
of the machine

TS: I really admired this poem.... a poem about computer parts is not an easy subject, and you took it and ran with it.... I almost felt like you were creating a robotic feeling here... and it was formatted in a fun way.... really love this poem!

I agree with Andrea, I didn't think anyone would pick this topic, in fact I made a joke about me picking this topic. ..

I absolutley loved your word choice in this. Just perfect! And my favorite part is how you said "silent humming". Love the irony in that. Because a computer does sit quietly, but on occassion makes this noise we all know about.

Very well done!

Now, this is different. Computer Parts: I saw the title and then the genre and thought, is this really going to be about computer parts or will it be a deeper message within the poem, I guess that it is both. Obviously,the topic and title is about a computer but ourselves, we are made up of different parts, that all do a job to keep us running, parts break, and parts need fixing to make us work...whether I actually looked for a meaning, or whether it was there, I am not sure, but I liked it anyway, and it made me think, gave me another look on life
