TOO UGLY FOR TIK TOK

TOO UGLY FOR TIK TOK

*

I‘m too Ugly

for Tik Tok

the Algorithms tell me,

as they delete me from the Public Feeds.

Too Ugly,

too Angry,

too Poor,

too Old,

My ancient, wrinkled face

might frighten children.

My Opinions might scare off

Investors & Consumers.

I simply don’t fit into their Format

of a shiny, plastic Reality

where everyone is Forever Young

and living in a K-Pop Video

even as our Cities

crumble around us

and the Earth dies by inches.

*

I’m too Ugly for Tik Tok

the Algorithms tell me,

and yes,

they are right.
