We all need teeth

Vanity of silence

The idling word

The determined way people look into the camera

mid selfie

No worse than those who hate shopping

Stuck in the same duffel coat

Stuck with the same profile picture

There but not there, a voyeur

Avoidance in itself more selfish than self-interest

Purring lazy into the world unseen

Unsituated, but so highbrow

Creative energies saved for real publications

on an unsocial online platform

Why make an effort in the everyday

The banal river of others

Muddling together in their atrocious bleating

Don’t let on that you think about them

Don’t let on that you care what they think

Let your teeth rot and fall out.

But you need them
