www (poem)

the internet
is full of
other peoples words
and other peoples pictures
other peoples ideas
and other peoples fictions

the internet
is covered in
people like you
people who comment and consume
people who do
nothing at all
for hours on end
its unbearable

the internet
is a woman
and shes schizophrenic
shes your mother
shes your best friend
shes your step-sister
shes a spider and you're stuck
struggling
in her world wide web

spiders eat bugs
they wrap them in silk
liquefy their insides
and finally
chew them into a paste
why would you let that
happen to you?
