Existence

Resists the truth

Of reality

All that's

Been shown

In this 

Instance

Is exactly

What they

Want you

To see

As you

Scroll these

Sensational scenes

And the

Clutches of

Envy

Dig deep

Remember it's

Not all

As it

Seems

You don't

Know what

Sorrow

Can We Pretend

Can we pretend
     social media highlights
     are every day life.

Can we pretend
     children aren't starving,
     neglected or abused.

Can we pretend
     Mother Earth will
     pardon our plundering.

Can we pretend 
     animals don’t suffer 
     for our gluttonous pleasure.

Can we pretend
     greed doesn't 
     fuel disease.

Can we pretend
     God is real and

Phantoms

 

We Humans are immortal if we choose to be

Drifting on the ether or the digitised streams

Of social media networks and video channels

Whilst our bodies turn to dust beneath the soil.

 

Our likeness Our actions   Our spirit        Our thoughts

Our friends    Our interactions       Our choices  Our life

 

Free spirits inhabiting the space we call Home

Cha-Chi Legacy

I inhale the tears 
welling up in my eyes.
Feeling like I don't have 
the right to cry for 

letting so much time go by
without saying hi,
how are you doing, 
what's new in your life?

I "kept in touch" 
watching your 
adventures
on social media, 

restoring 
power
after a 
hurricane, 

providing water 
and food for 
people who didn't 
know your name.

I was proud of you,

psychosocial media.

if the medium truly is the message
what is this message
of medium importance
we're all trying so desperately to produce,
and perform,
and perfect,

it makes us all think we matter
when in reality,

the reciprocity of this condition leaves us so nothing matters at all

The modern day captor

Scrolling , scrolling 
Hoping to distract myself
From the thoughts that run laps in my head
Never stopping to admire

Liking, liking
So maybe when I post
People might return the favour
And I can have that false sense of belonging

Watching, watching
Looking for something to entertain me
Unable to find it 
So my eyes glaze over

Playing, playing
Games with no meaning
Never finishin...

Slave to the Algorithm

I don’t want to drive engagement.

I don’t need your gratuitous clicks.

I won’t beg for attention with

Pics of kittens sleeping with chicks.

 

I don’t need your engagement.

I won’t ask if you’ve used a skate key.

I don’t need any silly test to

Know you are as old as me.

 

I don’t really care how you engage.

I won’t tempt you with an opinion poll.

No one really ca...

Internet Insanity!

 I visited my cousins in Russia

One summer vacation day,

And my conclusions during my stay

Turned out to be more than I could say.

*

What happened?

*

Older cousin surfs on laptop

Younger did that and ipod games too

Sister sticks to ginormous ipad

I skim online webs in hullabaloo!

*

What’s happening?!

Day after day, hour after hour

We’re caught in the ...

Like

 

the photographs of road signs charged by light,

footprints on the dashboard

or blurred trees  stooped like men picking leaves.

 

Or the back of my head, the garden shed

or all the landscapes from summer days when

we turned the camera on ourselves

 

and photographed nothing but wind.

We send thanks

and message school friends, relatives

 

and people w...

THE CHASE

there's a new kid on the block

A NEW SHOW IN TOWN

even as we speak

THERE'S SOMETHING GOING DOWN

and you need to be around

I TELL YOU FOR NOTHING

you need to listen up

WHO'S DATING WHO

what's trending where

AND IF YOU'RE IN DOUBT

i'll spell it out for you.

'CAUSE I'M THE DADDY OF ALL THAT'S NEW

that's how it is

AND I'LL BRING IT TO YOU

Facebook, Twitter, Texting all day long,

God help me if my signal isn't strong,

Quite sad I guess, but I know that it is true,

It's often just the way I can communicate with you.

 

Behind technology I can always hide,

If I can't get out the door because I'm trapped inside,

Some days it's true and I know it very well,

My bedroom is nothing but a prison cell.

CROC OF SHIT

entry picture

From Facebook came a Croc of Shit

To read and click and share

No longer I'll put up with it

Accused that I 'don't care'

 

"Share this if you have a heart"

"If you 'like' please type 'Amen'"

It stinks more than a day old fart

To read this shit again.. again.. again

 

I don't care if you send a curse

Wrath of God and all his might

One Direction would be worse

Pre-SocialMedia Times

A moment.

These days it's hard to have one
without feeling the need to share
every one with everyone.

Update it
       Tweet it
               Insta- it
                    'til we bleed.

How does this look?
         Who should we tag?
                 Where should we ping?

We've become factory workers
tasked with packaging our most worthy moments.

Keeping the extreme -
the happy
       the sad
             the a...

Mutuality

friends of friends and an orgy of mutuality

each one ripe for the fucking until we greedily

eat our own tails

 

I find myself running low on chemistry

 

with so little reaction left inside of me

the water around the plug hole no longer spins,

it only falls

 

architectural wounds

cannot heal beneath this razor’s murderous haste

while the cognisant ...
