Poem: Selfie

I see myself framed
against <#place location here>
back-lit by endless beauty

and then it clicks…

I am alone friendless
amongst <#cool crowd here>
black light glowing bright

and then it clicks…

I see the smiling faces
all around <#lost in solitude>
begging for some attention

and then it clicks…

Another upload pending
see the circle spin
re-tweet data trending
look at my life – I win!

and then it clicks…

no one’s really looking
no one really sees
none of this has meaning
no one really feels

and then it fails…

neither user nor current process
has android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE


Shall we have a conversation?
