Songs of Narcissus


songs of Narcissus
i tweet
the new dawn of cyberspace

you sparkle like the
crystal blue
fuelling my longing

love flows
like the summer river of time
chasing shadows

the genius of selfie foretold
the emptiness
of the soul in disguise

email from the edge
the search for meaning, the rise and fall
of complex emotions

the moon in her element
texting
the realm with gusto

the soul in Instagram
fleeting
images of fun and frivolity

imagining the naked self in the
virtual universe of desire…
the terrible beauty of self-infatuation

i burn with joy on the digital
screen of wonder
as brain neurons light up the world
