Love in the time of Influencers

Carl Colaco

I love you, you said
Even your aura, burns blue Bunsen
I love you more, sleepyhead
Your ego, with praises overfed
Pandered by vile men & women
I love you, you said
Messages left unread, you’re bad at texting,
Your fans, Pavlonian
I love you more, sleepyhead
Unfollowed, 22nd April 2019, our watershed
Out of sight, out of mind, disunion
I love you, you said
Your memories, your smile, all embedded in my head
Banana shampoo, Coca-Cola, Asthalin
I love you more, sleepyhead
I miss you, Mr. Potato head
Head atop your abdomen
I love you, you said
I love you more, sleepyhead.
