A few days ago,
WordPress.com thanked me and
offered congratulations on writing this blog,
for two years now.
I cannot believe how much,
this strange, wacky, little blog
of mostly weird poetry,
has become so darn important to me.
To have that sensation of merely
scrawling graffiti on a bathroom stall
to realizing that someone is actually
reading your words,
paying some attention at all-
it is and remains rather
amazing to me.
That others might read, connect or even pay
any attention to me~it is a strange random fruit
a piece of delicacy.
I want to thank all my readers,
for jumping into the unknown with me.
For reading, for commenting, for bestowing
any attention to my small world
That has been the most wonderful surprise
of all. To be able to connect through the maze of the
internet, with readers, with other writers, with other poets,
with anybody ever at all.
I celebrate this anniversary with all of you.
If no one ever paid any attention,
I would have just faded out into
Thank you each and all of you
for ever bothering to peek
into my bathroom stall
and read my graffiti-
loosely scribbled poetry
