Let’s try this again.

Pixels

I’m an icon that you click on
with some regularity,
or maybe just that once,
when the wholeness of me
gets condensed into
fifteen
minute
segments.

You won’t know from that
side of the screen
which angle I’ve chosen,
which window into my world I’ve opened,
which part of myself I’ve put forward-
real,
but
curated.

The more eyes that make up you,
the more I begin to divide
cell-like, creating my doubles,
versions that I don’t control,
until being myself becomes a
role
I
play.

I
don’t
know
how to use the lasso,
smooth out the pixels,
rotate my self-portraits,
deny entry the impostors –
but I’ll try.
