#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “The Influencer”

#QuemPensa é Spiralist: “The Influencer”

(Here’s one for philosophers:
            If any given tree falls down
            undocumented by a blogger
            does it really make a sound?)

 

From a distance, bear a smile.

Exercise your greetings while

basking in the glorious

transience of youthfulness.

 

Be the jester on the screen
from the edge of the ravine
(God forbid) and if need be
light yourself on kerosene
for the sake of fellow poseurs
and overstimulated brats.
And don’t forget your corporate sponsor:
your hospital ER’s skin grafts.

 

For as long as mounting numbers

tell a story of success

we shall wane and digress

‘til our bonds are torn asunder.

Worry not, I do not censor,
but I offer my two cents:

            when everyone’s an influencer

            no one will be influenced.
