Perfect Paperless

 

Don’t confuse online presence with presence

 

So it seems the standard for

Online affection is Perfection.

 

And I will continue to offer

This seemingly perfect picture

For the pleasures of strangers.

 

But behind the screens,

My people like me for reasons

Not social media.

Follow me for reasons

Not photoshop.

And love me for reasons

Not perfection.

 

And if Goofy strips perfection,

I tarnish my perfection

For people I care for.

 

And if Professional demands

Perfection, so be the appearance

Of my online presence.
