Voyager I

i wrote a poem
the world doesn’t care

i may as well have asked it
what to wear

i wrote a poem
twelve others saw it

some read my poem
five of them liked it

i wrote a poem
cast to the wind

random writer of poems
on a muse’s whim

thin as a heartbeat
in algorithmic heat

i wrote a poem
no need for despair

real as the planets
a scattering found rare

maybe it should be called ‘tincture for obscurity’?
