Chromatic iPod


Chromatic iPod

I sit and wait

in a round, ceramic dish.

Anxious to be held

and illuminated. Then you

grab me up, and run out the door.

Eww, must you put my speakers

in your ears, I hope they’re clean.

Shuffling and scrolling, you

look for the right tune. Maybe,

one of these days, you’ll learn

how to use my menu.

Nirvana, Coldplay and Pink,

all singing their songs.

Your workout intensifies

when the beats are more rapid.

Please don’t choose that song

Again, it drives me crazy.

Blink 182, seems to trigger you,

I enjoy watching you sweat.

Several songs come and go,

and you’re exhausted and sweaty.

I’ve done my part,

your workout is done.

We journey home

and I return to rest, until

next time, in that blue ceramic dish.

I just had a weird thought one day when I left to workout and just occurred to me, "what would my ipod say to me if it could talk?"
