Poking my Wall?

Pictures of dogs and babies
A little tab in the corner selling
Women and perfume. Someone
I don’t know poking me. Liking,
Sharing. Photos of me on someone
Else’s wall. People answering
Questions about me. Trumpeting
Gossip, sleaze and fake causes.
Losing ourselves in our timelines.
Dead gigabytes of pictures
Replacing our memories now defunct.
People we have know all our lives,
Wanting to be friends. And strangers
Commenting on my attire. Suggesting
Names for my new born son.
A clamorous din of half hearted
Birthday wishes and stolen quotes
Symbols on a computer screen that will
Disappear with the dreams. Deleted,
