Clatter

By Preeth Ganapathy

Depressed
white
plastic keys
clatter
monotone
in their
uniform
square slots
on the board.
backspace
escape
enter
q w
e r t y –
each key cries
louder than
the other
fighting to be
heard
over
the white
noise-chatter.
slowing-
down only to
the chirruping
green from the
open window
so different
from their
own
gossipy
banality.
A parrot flits
from
one
branch
to
another
on the old
oak tree un-
aware of new-
found
admirers.
