Millennial Poetess,

unloading her Costco cart,
glances ‘bubbly nebula’

in her Facebook feed, instructs
Siri to add it to a note. Poetess

googling Nuclear Waste Dumps.
Poetess’s ever-open window:

Thesaurus.com (will it be region,
locale, or location?). Poetess blowing

at her too-hot cup of virtual tea,
wondering whether her ocean

acidification poem should be epistolary
or digital. Poetess in Spandex,

contemplating focus, in Latin,
means hearth. To drown out

library-tour voices, poetess dons
ear buds, clicks Lullaby Radio,

resumes researching robotics.
