Five Social Graces

1
aimlessly scrolling the endless page
a net of fake jewels, of cubic zirconium
what is reflected, a mob of thoughts
seeking confirmation of themselves

2
what happens to all the labor done
in dreams, is there some dreamy payday
who collects what, a fist-full of air
why do we love it so, this empty fantasy

3
don’t be tempted, turn away, quickly now
one part wants another part proven wrong
wants your agreement for the surrogate candidate
do you love me, do you . . . love . . . me

4
entering the stream you become the stream
becoming the stream you forget it’s a dream
everyone is splashing about, slapping water
at each other, children play, no one to blame

5
look at me, look at me, now this is you
reflected in the mirroring form of me, look
take a picture, pass it around, please
click on it, click on it, like it, like me
