We used to share a secret song

in the small hours of the night

on a shining pixel planet

after her parents had passed out.


She knew how to push my buttons,

up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right,

until I was so worn away,

you couldn’t tell the A from B.


And then came the days in the drawer

buried deep beneath the papers

with my batteries discarded

in favor of one more Advanced.
