twitter communications

The poem falls out of my head

as my twitter feed fills

with repeated misunderstanding

and I find myself apologising



Sorry. I apologise,

and after saying that I cannot keep saying sorry

she asks me to say it again.


Not for the first time I find

that I am no longer sure

what I am sorry for.

There was a misunderstanding.

An occupational hazard of twitter debate.

She knows it well, being a more extensive user than I.


I thought we were ‘on the same side’

but recently I have not been so sure.


I do not feel betrayed,

more annoyed at wasting my time.

Easy to do with Twitter.
