Waking up on the bed under his tab, wholly adrift. The room was dark. The tabwas dark. He shifted his hips, a pelvic quiver, and saw the screen alight. Its flare aninstant beacon calling him back to duty, his services required.Chilbert lifted the surface until he was holding it a few inches from his face whilewondering, in passing, how much sperm he’d killed off by falling asleep with it on hislap. He wasn’t sure which count was lower, that or his Friends.Both giving him anxiety.He tilted the tab a half inch away from himself then back and watched as thestream refreshed. The heartbeat quickening, surge from the adrenal to the cortex. Joltedinto alertness. Top Updates algorithmically drawn from 1,131 people, most of whom heknew in name only, having met them some distant day at an event way beyond recall.Chilbert lay there, held in the stream’s indifferent thrall. His need to peecompeting with everyone’s outcries. An inchoate mix of signals, heraldic of humanity’sconstant need, recurrent diurnal revolution. The best of life he’d missed in the last hour and a half.

He had to pee.Back maybe a minute later. No 3 minutes, according to the stream, whichdisplayed a fresh wave of updates. Only now upon his return noticing that the tab had been playing music the whole time. Now it was a song he didn’t recognize from a personcalled Bashir Siddiqi’s station, radionowhere. Whatever it was sounded like Daft Punk  put through a de-electronifying filter, out the other side of whatever worm hole they’doriginally come. Chilbert was moved, though he wouldn’t have been able to say why or how, by its aleatory blend. He Liked it.Lying back down he lifted the screen overhead once again, its light contracting his pupils.
