I Could Not Stop Scrolling by Amy Winkler



The story knew

NOT

to land on me.

The story knew

that

I would not write it.

Rather, maybe it knew

I would start

but not complete it?

It was a good idea,

the story,

but the moment passed.

I did not take the time

to stop

S

social media

before it left me

for another writer.

To land on her

or him

or they

who would write

the story

better than I ever could.
