To Hermes of the Computer

by Erik Dutton

Hermes, winged Messenger –
You who rule all commerce and communication.
Be with me always as I work,
And I will always do you honor and make my work an offering.
Hear me now, O Hermes, as I offer you this prayer; every time the disk
spins, may my prayer travel out to reach you.
I write this short prayer and keep it at the root of all my hard drives (inspired in concept by the Tibetan prayer wheel -
the idea being that every time the disc spins it renews the prayer.)
