Avatars

i share my visions, i raise my voice
all around the cloud i'm heard
insta flicka tumbla tweet snap like i have no choice
and like like like like every selfie, every clever word

a thousand files a thousand friends
i'll never be lonely again
no their glowing faces are never far
now that all my friends are avatars

they live in language & video
sound so thoughtful, look so real
i see their work, wives, wee ones grow
i watch them watch, try to feel them feel

a thousand faces, a thousand friends
i'll never be lonely again
no their glowing praise is never far
now that all my friends are avatars

and what could be wrong with sharing
my brain's expanding before my eyes
the only limit to my caring's
a heart that's still built factory size

a thousand feelings, a thousand friends
i'll never go outside again, i love
their semicolon smiles, their blinking hearts
thank god all my friends are avatars
good god all my friends are avatars
