The older we get.

The more we connected we get.

Preteens

have group text messages

about sleepovers.

Bud lights. Tents. And manmade lakes. 

Sleeping in cars

with each other. 

with our tribe. 

The older we get

the further we are

from Snake on the Nokia phone.

and now Pokemon are 

literally

in the streets.

and the further we are 

from when one would

text

you had to press the number 7 button twice to get to the 

Q

train to Astoria Blvd

and 

the numeric sign

the sign for number

becomes a hashtag

a hash

tag

which means we are connected

and a double tap

gets me closer

to you

and a tag

is a name

is a death

is a life

what’s your tag

 

a new story

a news story

a snap story

an insta story

what’s your story

 

Milwaukee

Dallas

Louisiana

Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge

Trayvon Martin

Orlando

Media

Media

Trump

Media

Black Lives Matter

but Black Lives do matter.

So I don’t quite get the conversation.

History

Romanticize the 60s

the anti-establishment

and here we are

 

our Insta Story.
