This piece is strong and the title fits well.

The repetition of the first section works wonderfully to show the subject's frustration. It also helps to give the effect of caffeine induced jitters that are disrupting the subject's though process.

The presence of the symbols throughout the piece make it easier to picture the subject actually typing away through the thought process of trying to write when the words just will not come.

It carries an echo of writer's block and uncertainty of how to express the images that are pressing at the back of your eyelids:

// thankgodfor the [<-backspace] key
// iwonderhow i would getby withoutit

In all reality, it is a piece that many writers could easily identify with. At least, I certainly can.

This really is a wonderful piece of poetry.
