My hair is covid long

My hair is covid long

Unbrushed for days at a time

Sometimes sprinkled with alfalfa sprouts

Quinoa, Amaranth puffs, dandruff

There is nothing to impress

Funny that the dogs bark if I wear a beanie

All this time together and they still don’t know me

The dogs are broken recognition software

They bark if I exist

They are not my dogs

Never not reminding me of existing without want

They don’t want me

There are no video chats for me

Streams flow live in one direction

Talk at me

I consume

I support

Thumb up


All the hearts

My heart of hearts is hidden

Small and afraid of all of you

Openly careless (some fascist)

Believing in bewildering things and

Without want of me

In this ugly coat

Under bad lighting
