Insta Love

They told me at school that

In Verdi’s time

A love story was

Not convincing or believable

Unless one of the people

In love

Was tragically flawed in some way

They had to be

Ugly or poor or diseased or

Something beastly that made the love

Make no sense

Unless–of course–

Their love was the truest!

Nowadays

People only believe a love story

When the two people involved

Are narcissists

Spamming each other’s insta DM’s

Finding love only with another

Who’s hearts are as shallow

As their phone keyboard buttons

Ahhh yes

Don’t worry sappy young lover

You will find your

Insta soulmate

One way or another

Just keep taking those selfies–

You’re getting warmer!
