#14 - Anti-Social Networking

By posting useless platitudes on Twitter,
She left behind her life beyond the glass.
Forgot the taste of wine, the scent of grass,
And every joy was swapped for something bitter.
In her eyes there is no trace of glitter –
Each memory now lies within the past.
Her avatar and password are her mask.
Her sense of self – like light – see how it flickers!
But she's the first to know about the trends;
Pop culture is the beast that swallowed her.
She just can't be alone with all these friends!
A prophet with a million followers.
Though all the traps were set and plans were laid,
She knew that she was free, and felt afraid.
