Rowing the Internet

21 May 2017

I do not surf, but row
the Internet.  I prefer
a slower pace
that doesn’t curl my toes
over the edge
of whip-fast reaction,
at velocity speed.

I am one to ease into,
not slam against
the elemental.  I am
not a head-on crash,
but a cruiser through
the traffic of life.
I do not aim to cause road-kill.

I check-out the esoteric:
The correct pronunciation
of “gruyere”, “pernod”.
Is “floweret” acceptable
for “floret”? Who, actually,
was Hendrik van Loon?  Such require
a slower pace than surfing allows.
