Nobody Cares

I first read this short lyric poem by Emily Dickinson (published 1891) in a high school literature class and it just stayed with me.  Particularly now in the age of social media madness I often think about it.  I'm a very private person however having worked in the commercial world for many years I do understand the need for marketing your work.  It's a push pull conflict.  Even now this series which I call Nobody Cares is buried in my Projects page which somewhat ironically nobody will look at and I kind of like that...or maybe I secretly wish otherwise?

I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us — don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

My horse is very pretty

I am a great dancer

My arm is very long and skinny

My hat is really high in the air
