Claps.

Life never changes
sit by a quiet window
and write your heart out
then waiting with bated breath
for the first clap to arrive.


Comments.

A fan gushed with joy
“Your poem is so tragic”
My heart swelled with pride
but then irony set in
I wrote a humorous piece.


Curation.

The taste of morning
an ecstatic dance unfurls
as my mail inbox
pops out the awaited message
“Your story’s recommended”
