Saying No to Things

Jacob Sandler

April 26th, 2020

Swipe
Holograms for affection
Meditation as a medium
For putting my phone down
Never lasts

Underperforming
Digital confession
Instapoetics of affirmation
Breathe in breathe out
Like and engage
Find joy

Called out in pastel undertones
Grey areas of privilege unravelling
Giving up unbecoming
No credentials
To give identity
Where credit’s due
Despite gigabytes

Joys of insignificance
Butterfly affect
Muddied scent of last night’s rain
River brown and bloated
Seething
Gushes
I want to give myself

To you
