John Knowles said,

“There was no harm in taking aim,

Even if the target was a dream.”


So she took it to mean

It was ok to fantasize

But she took it too literally


Found a viable target

But she couldn’t leave the internet alone

Couldn’t leave the images

Couldn’t leave the social media

Had to look, more and more each day


Until there was too much information


That interfered with the fantasy


Like a wife and children

Like a happy marriage


She so wanted to press him

Like a touchscreen

To find the definition of their love


No, no love in a fantasy

Merely solipsistic pretense

So she tried to end it with him

On her part


Since he didn’t know


But like Lot’s wife

She turned around

One final time

And turned into

A pillar of silicon…
