Profile Picture

I really like your profile picture

the one with the nice skinny lady in the center

she’s gorgeous, she’s tempting–

she’s somebody else pretending.

I don’t want some strange bitch where your face should be

You’re supposed to be the one in the picture !

but if you showed the real you

what kind of person would I see

sitting there, writing those poems?

Someone I wanted? Someone you like?

Someone you’d follow, someone you’d share?

Ah, see, that’s the keyword here

the one that strikes the most fear–

“share”

Share if you deem yourself valuable,

graded mercy, tiers of trust.

all based on some stranger’s picture.

some picture, pure fiction, no marble–

no body to model, no expression,

no clay,

a nobody bust.
