So many devices, all in their shells
Meanwhile memories trapped in ourselves
Need something here that’s trapped over there
It’s enough to make anyone pull out their hair
A layer’s what we need, to stitch them together
So data can flock like birds of a feather
Free up our minds by quelling the fear
That all of our moments could just disappear
Next on the roadmap, Connect All The Things!
So from TVs to tablets our files can swing
There’s one hundred million that already heart it
But Drew says that Dropbox is just getting started.

Twitter Poem
The poem creates a space.
It hides in a tent in a forest.
Making its own bed it falls asleep in the dark,
wakes up under a lamp or the sun.

Billy Collins, whose new book of poems is “Horoscopes for the Dead.”

earth devotes
break in a wave train
fallout active plume cloud spills
red reactors give
cross characters translated
in kanji could say much more

Five classes, twenty-eight in each, all hers:
One-hundred-and-forty different characters.
