I clicked on the social media priest
to confess that I was lonely.
He instructed me to sugar the crow
and eat before all that know me.
So I chalked my status one hundred times -
too damn complicated -
on the blackboard of the cybermind,
hoping you'd erase it.
The likes were coming thick and fast
from strangers and from friends -
all begging for an update -
how does the story end?
I refresh until the poor mouse squeaks
and my trigger finger aches.
I've done my penance post on facebook;
must I apologize to your face?
