Prufrock on Facebook

How many friends would be on your list?                                                              Would you seek out those who ignored you in your youth?
Would you obsessively send friend requests and then spend your nights
awake, waiting for their reply?
Would you check your alerts every ten minutes? To see if someone
responded to your clever status?

What would you be like, dear J.A., in this world of social networking?
The chance to reconnect with old acquaintances
to have all that old business back in your face if you allow
The chance to manipulate your whole story
down to your profile picture
“a face to meet the faces that you meet”
Would you be so honest? And would you dare?

  1. Thank you so much, Hannah, for introducing me to Prufrock.
    Oh, to wear white flannel trousers and walk along the beach…
