Thumping Headache

I’ve tried it with my finger nails, I’ve tried it with my thumbs.

I’ve tried it with a pencil and that little stick that comes

embedded in my mobile. The display just doesn’t change.

The icons stay immovable, refuse to re-arrange.

The screen is in the headrest, on a long haul flight, economy.

Attempts to find a channel have eliminated bonhomie.

It’s “thump-screen technology” for me, as touch don’t work.

The guy that’s in the seat in front just thinks that I’m a jerk.

I jab and prod his headrest as he’s trying to have a kip,

and there’s something in his attitude that says he’s going to flip.
