The little inbox itch

I’m working hard.
In the zone.
I’m focused.
I’m distraction free.

Then there’s this itch.
This little inbox itch.
Have I got any mail?
Who’s emailed me today?

Should I look?
Should I check?
What if it’s important?
What if something’s wrong?

I want to check.
I want to send and receive.
But I’m focused.
I’m distraction free.

I need to work.
I can’t keep scratching this inbox itch.
Ok, maybe this once.
But then no more.

[REPEAT]
