pink plastic pots of solar powered flowers
waving to me metronomically
like animated selfie emojis
everything that’s wrong in the world
boiled down reduced
reproduced in an emoji
Mark Arm said you got it
Yeah, you got it so what?
Keep it outta my face
I’m not angry. I’m disappointed. I once rode the train behind a woman who was staring at her phone the entire ride. Which is pretty normal I guess. But when I caught glimpses of the device I realized she was staring at herself through the lens of her phone. Poking at her hair and pooching her lips and who knows what else. For the entire train ride.
For me this is the most annoying commuter behavior. Taking over the top spot from clipping-your-fingernails on the train.
Good morning. How are you? How was your weekend? How about this weather? Hey can I borrow those fingernail clippers when you’re done?
