do computers say 'um'?

do they form an orderly mental queue,
are they foreign to stress,
are they patient?


when presented with multiple commands,
does it take time to unmuddle,
is there a moment's hesitation
in which it cannot decide how
to approach the task at hand?

the latter seems to me
or am i just self-projecting?

as a user,
being impatient with a computer,
clicking and hitting keys,
compounding the freeze,
is this lock a manifestation?
is the heat produced by circuits,
(elevated in these um-states,
magnified by the user's expectation)
which wear thin over time
analogical to the masticating effect
of responsibilities and strains
on our Humanly Elevated State
called life?
