Before Google by Sofia Kioroglou

Before Google

I feel an eye,
always watching me,
I cannot see it but I can tell it is stalking me.

Before google came on the scene,
I could feel the sun beating down on me
wedding ring twirling around my finger

What I see now is only a pinprick of light
visible through the cracks in the old wooden boards
With so many tabs on my PC open I can’t be bothered to see the sun
