How Do You Stop from Scrolling: More Internet Haikus

re: the raya app
the dating app for celebs
is nothing sacred


also re: raya
the dating app for celebs
can we have one thing


please read a fav tweet
“albert nobbs 2: still nobbin'”
at my funeral


on The Daily Mail
how do you stop from scrolling
do you just die first


driving irl
i saw a “men working” sign
and heard, “…actually”


no disrespect but
no one needs to post their tweet
on their instagram


my unhinged old boss
is trolling me on linkedin
anyone relate


uberprints workers:
who of you judged my designs
was it all of you


hey, gary sinise
uberprints denied your face
on a baby’s bib


when carrie bradshaw
tries to hide from an email
that’s me with snapchat


politicians’ tweets
that try to be too wacky
make me feel unsafe


know who missed vine fame?
that white girl from missy’s vids
turnt ships in the night


more corgis in memes
really what can’t those dogs do
less pugs sorry/thanks


i haven’t made friends
in real life settings in years
thank you internet


i often wonder
when celebs say something wild
ever pop online?


twitter can be great
but sometimes a tweet’s so bad
i say “no” out loud


it’s upsetting but
i have no doubt this exists:
trivago daddy


a lone winky face
in facebook’s “other” inbox
is a threat, michael


the thumbnail version
of your profile pic still up
tells me so, so much


leaning in online
means not waiting for twitter
verify yourself
