Dear Spotify


You drive a hard bargain
using algorithms
to try to know what we like
and who is like us
sound is just a trace
of other measures other metrics
music a signifier
of crowd thinking
a playlist for every mood
but you keep getting it wrong
it being me
me being my taste
predictable yet irreducible
to musical style as information.
