  You could have a big dipper   

Jealous by Anthony Salandy

Jealousy is derived from once benign sentiment

Now driven by accelerated expectation

And mirth turned greedy,

Vain and obsessive.

But some seek such possession

As they play that age old chase

Of lovers searching, no running,

After transitory affections,

Beguiling and possessive,

But whirlwind fancies

Bring ruin to all flushed faces

Whose ambition consumes

An innocence dimmed by increasing notifications,

Those all so familiar applications

For which our new found jealousy is derived,

From faceless pictures

And angled torsos, digitally sculpted

And cheaply advertised.


Anthony is a mixed-race poet & writer whose work tends to focus on social inequality throughout late-modern society. Anthony's work has been published 140 times.
