Operators Wanted

1984, february.
outside, it's dark. -and raining.
it might have started five minutes or five days ago.
hard to tell.
I've been coding.
if I stare at the screen long enough
answers come to me.
that's my super power.
outside, the city is sleeping.
but the caret is blinking at me.
and this new disk I got,
it's brutal.
