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.
