I am here.

They are all posting selfies,
declaring their presence in the world,
announcing their importance,
staking a claim.
Hot or not?
Here is a new haircut.
This is a new dress.
Sunglasses, suntan, shoes.
A fragile existence,
validated by an image.
Look at me……. please?
Click like?

A face bare of make up.
Isn’t that brave?
A body stretched out by a pool,
see the biceps, envy the abs.
A cheeky prosecco,
lipstick stained.
Me and my besties-
right here, right now.
Proof of a good time.
Searching for worth.
Look at me please. I’m here……..
