Social media

It isn't life
it is one dimension of life
onto which we project
another two
of our own construction

Fleshing in the gaps
when what we need in our real life
is to realise that a like
is not the same thing
as a physical hug

Concepts of truth
and emotion blur
tribes form and fight
over words misread,
misunderstood

And always
as in any conflict
someone gets rich
And innocents suffer.
