Chained to These Screens

Cover Image

I’m screaming at these screens,

Staring back at me,

“LET GO OF ME!” I plead,

I have a family, a house, a niece!

They cackle up a fury,

“O darling don’t you see?”

“You’re our prisoner to keep!”

My head pounds a sound obscene

Eyes water up a stream

My lips crack and bleed

A slave I begin to weep

I’m chained to this web of memes
