hashtag, you’re it


i don’t mean to be
but why must we
up every single thing
we want to say?

please, don’t think me
but your flip atti
and need to be followed
make me want to stray.

let’s talk face to
and leave symbols their
wrangling numbers,
or as punctuation.

i’m not harshing your
or unfriending, be
i’m #justsayin’
i’m #notplayin’

    Especially that last stanza.
    Especially, especially “i’m not harshing your buzz.”

    So much fun!! 🙂

  3. 🙂 Yes, really. It’s kind of like Facebook, where every event has to be photographed in a “facebook -worthy pic” with some endearing/ witty words. So with twitter, every thought has to be entered in some category. Nothing can ever just be. Without an internet audience. Without worry of being liked or favorited.
    Anyway, just shows my age, I suppose. I get how it could be addictive, but for me it would not be a psychologically good thing. The devil lives in comparisons, and that’s what it’s all about.
    So yes, #notplayingeither 🙂
