Yeah, Sunday Works

On Sunday you crawl through computer parts
in a fever, misty-eyed, throbbing heart.
You pray, "Hope it works," to a motherboard,
four fans, sound blaster, EVGA video card,
Corsair power supply, 800 watt,
computer case with dragon on it,
Out of the box these RAM,
gSkill DDR-3 800X smiling rip-jaws,
are etched with teeth like a shark's.

Now, in a madness of uncertainty plug it in!

On Sunday you overclock the CPU
to run Weapons of War Craft at 95 DPI.
You calculate lovingly misdirected forms
to be blown to perfectly modulated bits
against stonewalls also blown up in 3D
UHD 4K at 60 frames per second.
Body parts flying. Trashed landscape.
Jeeps smacked up. Burning ammo dump.

Papa! What are you doing? Kids... Church...
Family love...

"Don't bother me.
Can't you see,
I'm busy!"
