“Friend Request Sent”

(thanks to Lisa Carver)

Facebook tells me
that there are no more posts to show.
Your wall is empty; like an abandoned
house, there is no proof that anyone
has been there, liked something,
shared a kitten video.

I want to
somehow break in,
rearrange the settings,
make it appear as though
you’re still here among us.

Because as long as your profile is here,
I can believe that you are.
I can believe that you’ve just taken
a break from the internet
without having made a dramatic announcement about doing so.

But the dead don’t have
Words With Friends.
