more than then,
#Facebook needs
and art
of the masters
and royal ladies
who dare
to dabble
on timelines,
old cobblers tearing
off the heels
of era, sublime
restoration of a different kind,
the way fragile leather
of the unheard moves.
Does it not know
no one’s really listening?
Does it not know
the nails have come undone?
Put your ear a little closer
to the tongue.
Hold your breath.
Are you not entertained?
