Itís the fans that distract, the hum interferes
The silence rubbed all away
Itís true screens can whine, a mosquito sound
Itís the fans that really annoy.

These info machines, they interrupt thought
Just as concentration settles
Just when the synthesis wants to occur
It hums, then it beeps about mail.

How many thoughts have dwindled away
Thoughts worthy and good to pursue
The mighty pen that conquers the sword
Is crippled in the keyboard form.

Visualization in seven dimensions
That may be worth all the hum
But dull data entry and some routine email
Is about all a computerís good for.

These days a phone, with airplane mode
It better than a computer that hums
Thereís quiet and peace when you turn off the beeps
Though itís hard to write with all thumbs.
