Curated: A Poem by Collette Kristevski

Window shoppers scrutinize
the divisive diatribe,
the preachy, pithy egoic lines,
memes of a world disorganized.
Shiny projections,
filtered (im)perfections,
enslaving mankind to contagious counterfeiting –
an invisible insurrection.
Get a glimpse
of their carefully curated museum minds
through windows the size of a palm.
Everyone is the other,
and no one is himself-
masquerading authenticity.
Even these words,
at first ignited somewhere else –
a subtle mimicry.
