Unsocial Media by George Held

Friend Alice is having
a meltdown

in capital letters
on Facebook

but nobody seems
to recognize it;

friends click endless "likes"
and a few hearts

while Alice goes
deafeningly NUTS.

George Held regularly publishes poems, stories, translations, and book reviews in journals such as Blue Unicorn, Home Planet News, Transference, and American Book Review and has received ten Pushcart Prize nominations. His new book, his twentieth, is Dog Hill Poems (Seattle, 2017).
