How did we become post-writers?
A kind of reading broke our text, one sentence at a time.
We had to dump the narrative.
We had to learn to speak in small bits and bytes.
Some have called this a poem, but we just call this a post.
We celebrate this post, we celebrate this renewal of language.
We reject the tapestry of meaning, we insist on immediacy and urgency.
And our insistence gave birth to the post-writer.
