Facebook Mirror

You do get a rundown of 
current affairs, politics,
and the latest music scene.

This very morning I am 
awestruck by the sheer volume
of friends’ creativity.

Photos and paintings galore
deck the homepage with such rich
color for my poor insight.

I am struck, too, by the fact
that most of my close friends live 
away—so I do wonder . . .

is it: a word I did say? 
simpler to abide at bay? 
No need to comment, okay?

’Tis not that I’m overly
sensitive, only I am
my world . . . that seems far away

today.  Still I remember
that mirror—in which objects 
are nearer . . . than they appear.
