anticipate + explosion + blocked

she’s waiting by the
computer, pacing, watchful,
eyes trained on the screen.
the email inbox, empty, stays
clear – still nothing new comes in.


 

she anticipates
something, though she is unsure
what she’s looking for.
under her feet, the floor is
cold. an error pops up: blocked.

 


message blocked, same as
all the tries before now, and
she explodes into
a rush, frenzied typing, clicks.
tries to undo her mistakes.
