To Lauren S., from a Facebook comment section.

You’re an artful Trixie,
a transgressive Becky,
the basic bitch anima
of cruelty free Vegan Pho,
washed out rainbow hair,
and curated clapbacks—

I never liked your kind,
so combative, so delicate,
so earnest in your woke abnegation,
but you’re clogging up my feed
with your emoji callouts
and performative prattle,
so I hope you don’t mind
that I’ve blocked you,
muted you,
unsubbed you (forever)
on every digital platform,
in every tangible way.

  1. I love this. I like to see anger in poetry, sometimes. Poets aren’t just soppy souls: they have claws too 😉 When I write them I call them my POPs –Pissed-Off Poems 😉
