Title: A touch of whimsy.
Post by: Gyppo on October 28, 2019, 12:29:42 AM
We all know about the little ladies who work inside our computers, even if we don't talk about them, but...

After a run of damp days
the heat from the laser printer
vaporises the extra moisture
in the normally dry paper.

As it fires up, prior to printing,
a few ghostly tendrils wisp upwards.
Barely noticeable by day,
but at night, against the blackout curtain,
I wonder if a tiny man is hiding there,
having a crafty fag break.

If I ever find myself looking for him,
I'll know I've cracked.
