Notes to this poem…
Instagram is such a superficial and spam filled platform. People Like things and follow others just to have get them to follow them back, then dump them. There are tons of fake accounts that exist only for a short time. There are people who like everything with a local tag, probably done by someone or bot on their behalf. It’s all to serve the “ego”nomy and how egonomics works. Hashtag popular hashtags like big cities and you’ll find a bunch of these sources easily. I’ve been experimenting to know, but I also know what it all means… or really, doesn’t mean. 🙂
The R-series poems were composed while I was out running, in an effort to find time for writing in a life that is always getting busier.
