Blaming it on the Keyboard

The ‘C’ sticks,
repeats itself
as if caught up
in some mad recall.

The ‘S’ engaged
in the same such stew
goes sluggish
in extended hiss

The ‘M’ is faded
like a fuzzy memory
and all the keys
are worn.

Once
state of the art,
it stumbles, forgets its words
and how to spell them.

It types
so much
slower
than it used to

and seems
no longer sure
if what it types
is true.
