i look up at the screen
the glowing phosphor illuminates my face
countless hours spent here
the display blinks
the fans blow warm air onto me
i hesitate
what can i do today?

the display blinks, waiting for my command.

i send my message.
it replies.
a tool for me and you.

the years pass

the beige box replaced with flat black
the warm glow replaced
with the harsh light of liquid crystal

i look down at the screen
notifications constant
hours past
im still here
notification after notification
i hesitate
what does it need me for today?

the speakers blare, you need to act.

it sends its' message
i reply

a product; me and you.
