iPad Blues

the gurus
conduct -
fingers circle
hover
prod
like batons

screens slip,
slide and
rotate
obediently

there should be
accompanying
chords:
dramatic
and aching;
or light, trippy 
ecstatic

but i bend
over
like an unhappy witch
with a cauldron
that won't bubble

i stoke the fire
in all those weird
21st Century ways
unplug
reboot
file
settings
swear word

but the fire
just smokes
sulkily
and doesn't
respond
