I posted my feelings to the website,
to share some of my intimate fantasies,
my most profound thoughts on grief and delight
expressed through natural analogies,
had even worked long and hard on rewrite
to clearly convey glib analyses.
Once it was approved, I waited to see
over the course of the next many days
just what the impact of my words would be,
anticipating that my thoughts would blaze
among this literate community
who would shower me with critique and praise.
But, judging by the response to my post,
I might as well be an Internet ghost.
