Reflections on a Facebook Defriending

Reflections on a Facebook Defriending

Here’s a cool thing, for me –
and it shows progress –
when you defriended me
this time I spent only a
few seconds feeling hurt
and wondering why
and then I had more
interesting and important
things to do and no time
to spend worrying about
it, or wallowing in the
drama of it, or feeling vague
guilt over I knew not what.
But I did get a poem
out of it.

a poem out of it

  1. Unless you know why, it may be that you weren’t in the inner circles of that person and the person just decided to house clean. But it would’ve been nice for the person to let you know why. Kinda rude, otherwise, So….maybe no real sense of loss necessary. One can’t be friends with 6 or so billion people. 😉

    • I’m sure you’re right, Bramosenos, Divine Druid of the Celtic Cross and all points from the Single Senter of the Universal Universe of Foul Food and Fey Frippery, Jigs, Jags and Jogs and Humble Hubris of Ecstatic Exageration in the Name of the Firm of Son and Sun and Higher Lowness, Loch Ness etc. etc. and ad nauseum, Custodian of the Museum of Unnatural History, Brewer of St. Piran’s Coref (beer) and Distiller of Ui Suileabhan and Mac an t-Soirle’s Single Double Triple Malt, Pursuer Protector and Procuror of the Palliative Peyote, Semi-selected Seer of the Salubrious Smoke, Philosopher of the Philanderer’s Physick formally from, (in a former life,) Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwryndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch on Ynis Mon.
      I’m just proud to find that I don’t care one way or the other. 🙂
