Dear ad networks


Dear ad networks,

Please, stop recommending me a hundred brands of lactase.
No, I’m not worried about qualifying for a mortgage,
and no, I don’t want more colorful, soul-sucking mobile games.
I’m not interested in things I’ve already got.
It’s almost like you’re training your network on the past.

Have you heard of newsletter ads?
Well, I subscribe to some newsletters
solely for their curated ads.
Like ads for apps I may find useful.
Ads for books I might enjoy reading.
They introduce me to things I haven’t already got.
You could say they explore the world around my interests.
That’s the one thing training on the past can’t do.
