Peter Bought a New Device

Household GPS a Siri

I have renamed her many times

Joan today although she has to be addressed as HEY SIRI

so that she can do her work play

Erroll Garner when you walk into the house

she turns on  lights turns them off reports on weather

provides information but when  I said

Hey Siri (Hey Joan) can you tell a story or a joke

she replied with a funny kind of annoyance as though

I should have known better I Am Not a Human she said

so I told her a joke my mother’s favorite about the old lady

on the beach in Miami and I’m happy to say Siri knew how to laugh.

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
