To poem, or not to poem?
Whether it is nobler in mind to suffer
the slams and comments of outrageous Twitter
or take arms against the seas of Instagrammers
and by opposing them to be banned, to be offline–

no more– and offline we say we end the heartache
and the thousand natural shocks
of submitting to journals. Tis a consummation
devoutly to be wished.To be offline, to create
to create perchance to become; ay there’s the rub
for in the offline world, what ideas may come
when we have disconnected from the mortal clouds
must give us pause.
