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"
on social media,
and food for
people who didn't
know your name.
I was proud of you,

if the medium truly is the message
what is this message
of medium importance
we're all trying so desperately to produce,
it makes us all think we matter
when in reality,
the reciprocity of this condition leaves us so nothing matters at all

Scrolling , scrolling
Hoping to distract myself
From the thoughts that run laps in my head
Never stopping to admire
So maybe when I post
People might return the favour
And I can have that false sense of belonging
Looking for something to entertain me
Unable to find it
So my eyes glaze over
Games with no meaning

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...

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.
Older cousin surfs on laptop
Younger did that and ipod games too
Sister sticks to ginormous ipad
I skim online webs in hullabaloo!
Day after day, hour after hour
We’re caught in the ...

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...

These, in the day when others were falling,
the hour when their foundations fled,
followed their social media calling,
to believe in lies, maliciously spread.
Their fingers held the lies suspended;
they typed, and online kingdoms stay;
what sense abandoned, these defended
to save fuck all, then run away.
(Homage to A.E. Housman)

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
i don't need no cryst...

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.
I can go...

too difficult to utter.
We immerse ourselves in seas of frequencies not understood,
On-line segregation ensues.
Our intentions unknowingly communicated in silence,
subtle images suggesting a desire to disconnect.
Our tongues devolve,
regressing from thought.
Cyclical behaviour has missed a curve.

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

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?
SHARE if you have a hamster you love with all your heart who you know will do anything for you
QUENTIN has TAGGED you in his album 'Genital Warts' (51 pictures)
because all your friends want to see the spotted dick of a person they've never met
so close to LICK

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

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
cannot heal beneath this razor’s murderous haste
while the cognisant ...
