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 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,
a nobody bust.
