Are We All Narcissists, Now, Loving Ourselves to Death?


This is a question for the internet generation (me, you, someone we know?) which I pose in a short poem I just wrote this morning. Hope you enjoy it _/|\_

For Millennials

Young narcissus
contemplating your beauty
in a lake of selfies

I, too, am enraptured
by your shifting reflections
updated, regularly

Please, look away —
lest we both stumble and fall,
drowning in this vanity.
