Snowflakes

Misunderstood selves cringe before mirrors where visions are clouded by judgment
Imposed yet swallowed as supplement in lieu of comprehension
Too much time to learn
Busy is necessity
Videos streamed in endless feline progressions
Dinner and drinks overshadow images of self-loathing
Once on display
Now stored in closets once reserved for sexual secrets
Those on display before notifications of fuckfriends’ complexity

No question periods remain
Once interrogation denounced amid guileless depictions of inquisition’s perpetual absence of stupidity
No longer spoken
As grammatical markers of reciprocal curve and point
Fade from use
Answers’ necessity implied as left
Without comment

Wardrobe before substance once detailed public existence
Today’s self-expression
Artifice of self-denunciation
Depictions of broken minds
Detract interest’s validity

Yourself
Expression not required

Constructed being’s personality
I am my profile
