Among the tiny paragraphs,
The only moving thing
Was the .gif of the blackbird.

I was up to three retweets,
Like a tree
In which sang three Members of Boy Bands Who Kinda Suck At Life.

III
The times Taylor Swift Was Just So Perfect whirled in the autumn winds.
I played “Shake it Off” as part of my pantomime.

From The Office.

poured in a vintage Scooby Doo cup.

It marked the trend
Of one of many hashtags. #ClapBack

Flinging their green light,
Even the gods of guacamole
Would cry out sharply.

He clicked through the 36 Questions Women
Have About Men.
Once, a fear pierced him,
In that they mistook
The adjustment of his equipage
For flirting.

XII
The River Phoenix tribute is moving.
Isn’t Stand By Me on Netflix?

XIII
It was listicles all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow
And here are Some Treats Guaranteed to
Keep You Warm as frost blankets the cedar-limbs
