For a sexual revolution

it’s remarkably like sitting.

Don’t get me wrong,

there’s some fine monitors out there

but they hold no tongue

to the grace of touch

pirouetted down a glance’s flare

heating the muddy pools of Woodstock;

it’s held now, at the push of a button

agonizing seconds of cyberspace

as to whether winky face

implies a wink or sillier drink

while pictures, trailing a thousand lols

peel off the layers between

expediency and self-preservation

disillusioned lies of privacy

undermining the intimacy

of human artistry.
