Frustration

Frustration

Connection

Connection

Connection

 

When did

our internet connection

become

more important than

our human

connection?

 

If a Snapchat

is now

more valuable than

a handshake,

a hug,

a smile,

what happens when

we try to interact?

 

Connection

is more than

filters and flatlays

stories and snaps

status updates

apropos of nothing.

 

To live through

our tinted camera lenses

is to function

without

connection.

 

Why is

our internet connection

now

more important than

our human

connection?

Foundation

Foundation

Foundation

 

The mask I wear

sometimes

more often than not of late.

Slippery yet drying

it clings to me

like I cling to the idea

of youth

lingering on inside

my sun-damaged face.

 

Foundation

is a base layer

a building block

for the other visual lies

I present to the world

or tell myself.

 

Foundation

shouldn’t just come from a bottle

or stick

or revolutionary solid block.

 

Foundation

is what you’re made of

not what you make-up.
