if i see it in the reader

i don’t think i need to

read the full feature

so i  “like” it and run

and just keep scrollin down

searching for the gravatars

of the three or four out there

who i actually care about

sometimes, i forget

and lose my timing

panicking and liking

that 8,000 worder

on the history of albanian goat herders

that they only put up 8 seconds ago

so it must seem most unlikely

to them, at the other end

that i’ve read the lot

and digested it and considered the fate

and health of albania’s late great agricultural wealth

in fact, it might appear

that i’ve only read the first ten words

and then swerved off course

consumed by my vice

of pressing “that” button

that’s the real life social equivalent

of calling something “nice”
