The mouse with an Odometer

Odometer

                                           I wonder how many miles I’ve scrolled sitting behind my mouse.

                                           Surely all these years of scrolling must have added up to something……

                                            I wonder how far I’d make if I laid it all out, end to end.

                                            I wonder where it would take me, if anywhere.

                                            If I took myself off of neutral  and just let myself roll,

                                            how far would I scroll…?

                                            I see myself under an orange sky,

                                            with the Sun’s fiery untouched gold plastered across the horizon,

                                            and I  squeak away, an internet inch at a time.

                                            Off to somewhere.
