I received a notification
of a very special day. The moment:
“Happy anniversary!” with a ding!

something from inside the screen rings.
I didn’t know I was married?

For a moment I was taken in,
the computer imitating life,
sorry, no, the -live- sound of bells
like the message on my screen imitates
a kind of happiness
trying to be so real that it’s fake.

until WordPress reminds me
I am after all, not.
It was just a scheduled reminder
that six years ago today,
I joined WordPress.
Thanks but no thanks, bot.
