Poetry: Bloggers


Like newborn birds, flightless and clamoring

For bits of worm, the noises that explode

From our heads fill the ether, a mad cry

For attention in the hope that someone

We will never meet casually clicks

A button, indicating we are liked.

In this universe, where everyone

Seems to have something to say and the tools

To publish random thoughts and images

To what seems to be the civilized world,

Every act becomes duplicitous,

Each comment filled with hidden agendas

So you never know who is listening

Or that your words make any difference.
