#2,678 Deleted Hinge

Mike Bell/ May 1, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Deleted that damn app & its
likes [one less tapped-at act
on hour or response] – lifted
from love’s early obligations
to endure her online dances
in my palm – no needled eye
to thread with best words – I
will reduce to finer rags – my
honest coat of rarer meeting
in life – my game less known
to algorithmic elbow of offer
& upsets – less paddle board
& face filters – less pout pulls
& high-angled chins – less to
see in a mis-represented age
