Love in the Time of Facebook

I.

That’s the kind of love you have to offer;
your dick
my mouth
one truck.
[Midday]
And then there’s your Wi-Fi provided love.
Selfies and check-ins
and scraps of profound wisdom
and, oh, so many promises
along with filtered,
flawless skin n’ on-camera smiles
accompanied by the appropriate amount of hashtags

#love#loveofmylfe#theairIbreath#imsolucky
#mygirl#wifey#bestgirlfriendever

Wish you’d say that out loud.

 

II.

With the taste of your manhood still in my mouth
I scream into my pillow [offline]
Love me!
ME, ME, ME!

then,

my phone beeps
my hungry heart leaps
I read yet another tweet

“This love will be the death of us”

n’ I give
my Like
to thee.
