Hi, Gang:

While this isn't 100% pure Gibson approved cyberpunk, hopefully
someone will get a kick out of it.  Especially a certain special someone

who will find this waiting for her at work tomorrow. ;-)

Happy VD,

(Declaring Sysop Love)
-- for Chandra, Valentine's Day 2001

“Baby got backup!” I screamed
at the curvy blue-eyed laptop unit
hitchhiking on the information superhighway.

You flashed a grin that
could melt chrome and
ignited my firewire.

It wasn’t fair how fast you blazed
through handshakes and heartaches
Before my firewalls could stop you
I was snared in your world wide web.

I feared you’d give me the boot
and it would rec.my.heart
I phreaked, but you were liquid cooled,
yet hotter than an overclocked athlon.

iMac, but only on you.
The only virus I’ve got is your love bug.
You made my microsoft into a hard drive, and
asked, “Should we crash at my place? || yours?”

That night, free from monitors
I traced your body from the beautiful faceplate
straight down to your fuzzy...logic.
The smell of your neck became my password.

I wanna hack your dreams and
write myself into your future...
we’ll make our own script kiddies -
sun systems and daughter processes.

just reach out and grep my hand
and our search is over.
