The Facebook Sonnet – Sherman Alexie Just saying

Welcome to the endless high-school
 Reunion. Welcome to past friends
 And lovers, however kind or cruel.
 Let’s undervalue and unmend

The present. Why can’t we pretend
 Every stage of life is the same?
 Let’s exhume, resume, and extend
 Childhood. Let’s play all the games

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

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