I do not get paid much for my short poems. Often not $5/month.

I don't write anything long, and so no large read-time.

Long articles usually bore me. Even when I write them.

When claps were a determiner for pay I did okay. Medium decided that time was more useful than appreciation, as is their right.

I'll live in this community as long as they will have

me.
