On Fire

Roth Poetry

Numb fingers

tingle hands burning

What’s the deal

Your failing

After all these years typing

Getting old

Tendon overload

Short circuits

Jolting pain

You click away, wrist lights up

Can’t stop now

Fingers, please don’t fail me

You must help

I’ll slow down

You still have more words to type
