status

 

Status is a collection of commiserations, wisdoms, placeholders, remembrances, lessons, guiding principles, wives’ tales, riddles, puns, purges, time management tools and helpful hints. It is an amalgamation of reiterations, recipes, spells and spits. There are half-meditations, fortunes, factoids and foibles. There are spills and freezes. This representation is full of forget-me-nots, deciphers, misfires and strikes. Somewhere between poem prompt and punditry lies Pithos, the quip, the quick, the truth, an emergent poetic form: the Facebook status.
