I posted my feelings to the website,
and shared my most intimate fantasies,
and most profound thoughts on grief and delight
expressed through natural analogies,
and even worked long and hard on rewrite
to clearly convey glib analyses.
Once it went online, 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.
