You have to love Sherman Alexie. A great writer to follow on Twitter. Also obviously a big fan of Facebook. Thanks to Nick for passing this along.


The Facebook Sonnet by Sherman Alexie

Sherman AlexieWelcome to the endless high-school
Reunion. Welcome to past friends
And lovers, however kind or cruel.
Let’s undervalue and unmendThe present. Why can’t we pretend
Every stage of life is the same?
Let’s exhume, resume and extend
Childhood. Let’s all play the games

That preoccupy the young. Let fame
And shame intertwine. Let one’s search
For God become public domain.
Let become our church.

Let’s sign up, sign in and confess
Here at the altar of loneliness.
