In This Tiny Box

Typing with my thumbs in this tiny box
I feel cramped in here –
the space seems too small
to hold my thoughts –
my joys, hopes, and fears.

My Boomer thumbs are clumsy and slow
and not quick enough to keep up
with the feelings and flashbacks
and inner flow.

Sometimes a cellphone just doesn’t cut it.
