The Selfie

Anonymous selfie
Anonymous selfie posted on the Internet

Malodorous sign, unhappy blend
Of man and machine, the friendless friend
Where face and frown are all that’s seen,
The outward show of primp and preen,
Perspective never beyond an arm,
The closer click of vanity’s harm;
The polished mirror the ancients prized
Gives way to pixels undisguised.
