TITLE: One Notable Exception

She's beautiful of course
I wouldn't have married her otherwise
but it is sad
'cause she's a sufferer
suffers from TDD
technology disassociation disorder
I made that up, but
in short
she hates technology

There is one notable exception
she loves her ipod
syncs with itunes
and downloads
day after day
her meaty podcasts

Nine to Noon
Saturday Morning with Kim Hill
Politics
Woman's hour
Americana

The downloading
it is a ritual
a morning tradition
she walks into our office
flicks her computer on
loads itunes
sorts through her podcasts
pushes the 'get all' button
and yells through the house
“I am just uploading my ipods”

A thousand times I explain
if it comes down from cyberspace
and lands in her computer
then it is a download
and
if it goes up from her notebook
into the
wonderful and wide web
then it is an upload

though she understands
the differences between
ipods and podcasts
uploading and downloading
the connection between
the understanding
and the speaking
has a twisted wire
thus nothing changes

however she's my wife
she is beautiful
intelligent
and she daily
uploads her ipods

A beautiful poem. I especially like that part at the end where he loves his wife regardless. Excellent!

LOL, Great piece, I laughed all the way through it because I saw myself so clearly. Good job---the 'wife' in this poem must be related to me--.

Well done.
Danielle King 12/04/11
Me too. I must be the wife's grandma. I can identify so well with her in this excellent, comical and creative poem! Well done!

AWWW! How sweet. :) I hope your wife is able to navigate the computer good enough to read this adorable poem. ;)

Dare I say, she's one step ahead of me - I am, as yet, ipodless! Hehe!! A wonderful tale full of affection and love and patience. Well done!

A very touching an moving poem. I really could feel the love throughout - you were just commenting and not complaining or criticizing. She is a very blessed woman.

Well done!

I was put off at the line "I wouldn't have married her otherwise."
