I wake on Saturdays away from home,
so if I’m to maintain my posting streak
of publishing a daily lockdown poem,
then Friday’s my occasion, every week,
to schedule the meter in advance.
But I mistrust the algorithm’s deeds.
I long to give my verse at least a chance,
but often mine don’t make the Reader feeds.
It happens with a same-day sonnet too,
but then I can repost to catch a yes.
When I’m away from my home office, you
may fail to see what’s not in RSS.
I’ve taken to selecting lesser verse
for Saturday, to dull the WordPress curse.
