All kinds of occasions may give rise
to poetry. Here is a poem I wrote some 
time ago. It is dedicated to online friends.


You lurk right there
In the corner of the screen
You call yourself a friend
You dissemble unabashed

When the screen gets blank
Little friend you are not enough
You are so much more than a drug
So much less than a cure

Every day your image
Fades with the tempo
Of a novelty turned
Threadbare with the use
