Computer Virus by David Russell

Computer Virus
David Russell

Gulleted  in spark glint veins
Flabbering circuits in floppies
Print-out piled high, choking, crimped;

Programme busy; not applied;
Insufficient memory.

Germs swallowed ink;
Myopic suction

Greek symbol coffee grounds
The winking green a vaccine

The quantum got under the mouse

Insufficient disk space.
We crash the orbit.

A spiky cursor jams backlogs

Danger: Programme Overloaded.

Blacked flash; inked screen transferred;
Teeth in the bytes

And have you seen a paper jam
A heated crumple coming strong?

Graphic rings blotching

All could explode –

The old typewriter’s gone to rust.
