there’s an art
to creating
art.

first place

full circle?
linear closure.

i can’t believe
this is the culture
i loved so much—
where i felt in touch—
a spike in my rhythm—
f#ck all the
Couch Protesters
seeking replies
and
Internet Therapists
seeking likes.

taking sides
under terms falsified
by profiled insights
that you read in
the highlights.

it’s not real life.

get off this device
because
manipulation hides
on the good side.

i talked with him today
on the phone
remember that?
an art even
academia forgot
and
if you really want to help
pick up the phone
and just be his
friend.

if you don’t have his number, then
perhaps you shouldn’t
have commented

in the
first
place.

document it

document it
until you
become it.

mobs, causes, and (online) activism

– brianprince

it’s still
hard to think
that people
believe everything
they read

on social media.

opinions a-flying
opinions a-sticking
this mystic cryptic
hypocrite validation.

and better yet
(or worse off)
we
share
it.
