The Interpreter

I try to love you from afar

In agreement and obedience.

In bursting orange stars

In studio time.

Extra time.

In one hundred and forty characters.

This story has been edited

One hundred and forty times

to fit your thoughts.

Your responses

Fly @me

With – I assume – little

Regard for mine.

You are more moon than star.

@

One hundred and forty characters

To bring the idle home.

Each has been known

By your voyeuristic eyes.

@

I was received on four thousand.

On many more, I was ridiculed,

Nurtured

Then praised.

Volatile mentor.

@

We meet.

And I am

deducing the inspiration

Like one terrible interpreter.
