Two Poems by Maria Declare

The Instapoet

I am an Instagram
Bright, concise poet.
The one who said:

Caffeine is my life
And overlayed it with a crumpled coffee cup
(Because I am dead)

Once I loved a website browser

Once I loved a website browser,
but he has made me weep.
For I did the dual screen;
I pushed what should have stayed asleep.
In cyberspace, I danced to google green
and I grazed with the wireless mountain sheep.
I gathered my websites like wildflowers
and set my tabs to hexadecimal display.
I was in raptures on the web,
but when I tried to lead those lips across the second screen,
his soul got lost; my browser crashed and ran away.

Now alone, and it’s all to zeros as I say:
Oh lonely pixels, where’d you go?
My liquid friend, oh why’d you go astray?
