I find your thumb print

smudged against your click tab judgment

i guess a thank you note

for a poem well written-

what inspired you the most

the fact that it was short

or spoken mostly in prose?

could you clarify to lullaby

my inquisitive mind

with what Freudian slip

I have entwined?

how could you condemn

a poem to a death sentence

before inquiring with preventative measures.

put behind bars volleyed by likes and dislikes

gently on display

to be paraphrased.

what lipstick confession

has become such an obsession

it causes the finger to linger.

click its over another love letter marked return to sender.

was it truly read

or have they surrendered

their eyes to the shadowed of the words

at least for the best click yes

redeeming the false pretenses

left in its sentence.

a critic be then perhaps

a biography

of what one within has seen or not seen

for a dream to some

can be obscene

ant yet fray the fine line between.

dear pretender

may your eyes not venture

to the button which likes

but find one cul de sac

back to the titles

and ask yourself

would you want a rebuttle

from someone who has shuffled

through the depths of literary anarchy

and returned unscathed-

only to say i liked it

what's the point.
