By Annmarie Lockhart

The Internet never forgets
diary, scrapbook, minicam
permanent record

each impression a wordless
oh frozen in a collective
consciousness

thawed and absorbed,
a spring melted snow,
muddied and fresh

with each hit, view, poke,
chat, upload, update
eyelid imprint of life
lived in binary code
black and white
vivid in subtext
and innuendo
fleshed out
sexted, flirted
fully figured
inside the
locket
