There’s something comforting about typing something in
you’ve typed in before
and the whole phrase shows up
and all you have to do
is click on it.
It’s like coming back to an old bedroom,
finding everything where you left it.
Joshua Lindenbaum’s poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in HEArt Online, Breadcrumbs, West Texas Literary Review, Typishly, Five2One Magazine, Silhouette Press, Mistake House, The Bangalore Review, 3Elements Review, and several other publications. He’s currently pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing and Literature at Binghamton University and will become a full-time professor despite a dismal job market. The pen has been his companion for quite some time, but it’s still waiting for him “to put a ring on it.”
