Poem a Day, Day 24

This challenge was to write a poem based on a photo. I chose the pictures that my 14 year old chooses on MySpace and other social networking sites as her...


She holds the camera up

Creating an odd angle

Almost bird's eye

but false

She purses her lips

Is that a kiss or a pout?

And posts it on the internet

for all to see

The corruption of a teenager

in digital splendor?

Or just a young person

finding herself?

Should I be concerned

or elated that she's

expressing herself at all?

-Justin M. Howe
