Another global hacker has locked hard drives,
asking $300 in Bitcoin to liberate files,
and I wonder whether I should, instead,
beg them to freeze mine, and thus return
to an age of innocence and concentration,
heedless of likes and teapot tempests,
yet for all that, content.

Devon Balwit spends a lot of time scolding her son for gaming while surreptitiously checking her email.
