I watched a friend devolve
on the assembly of white boxes,
parading for egos addicted to sharing;
and now she's playing tag --
sharing names with strangers
and best-forgotten ex's;
hurling insults in pixel print,
the monsters escape
and all anyone can do is like it.
I remind myself, these specters
are contained behind the glass
I hover a finger over her name,
unable to decide
the kind of friend I'd be.
The definition of "unfriend" according to the Urban Dictionary.
