Auden correction

I tried to Tweet; it didn’t work.

Facebook makes me feel phony, so I cancelled my account. 

Suspicious of Google I now resist consulting it, preferring to look up things in dictionaries or encyclopedias.

Instagram, SoundCloud etc etc—the minor leagues—hold such little interest that they might as well not exist; in fact, I respect those who refuse, for whatever reason, to use any of these social media platforms.

Auden was wrong: poetry makes everything happen.
