I did not charge overnight

a picture of the poem, written on a typewriter

I did not charge overnight
forgetting to plug in the devices.
This morning, they are drained
as am I
waking up feeling more tired than before
turning in last night.
I envy those devices
now plugged in and
receiving direct energy
As that luxury eludes me
as I turn on another device
and another
and another
So that I may smile and nod before
my colleagues
on screen
Battery drained.
