Black rectangle
squeeze side, tap screen.
Find square in row
of squares rarely seen.

Connection begins
under worldwide lens
to soundless faces inside circles
dreaming, creating, living.

Even a wife becomes
her username
never mind the meaning...

Excited for her upcoming job
she clicks delete,
purging aged activity.

No need for questionable memories
causing her anxiety.
