This is just to say

I haven't checked
your Facebook status
or followed
your Twitter

on which
you were probably
announcing
big things

rather than
telling your friends
directly
in person
via email
or on the phone

Forgive me
I haven't
the time or
the attention span
to sort the dreck
from the
important stuff

(With apologies to William Carlos Williams *g*, whose original is one of my absolute favorite poems.)
