The Selfie is a Lie.

Self-consuming selfie.

Yourself and the machine.

Hiding in a picture.

From the camera gleam.

Stitching down the edges.

Patching up a dream.

Looking at the treading.

Tracing every seam.

Lies and cover photos.

A life to which you stream.

But such are only pictures.

That lives in a machine.

Excerpt from: How to make love(Click to read more like this); by Samuel Mork Bednarz.
Listen to the typographical performance of the poem on Youtube.
