digital bitlife

your life is constantly streaming
we each illegally exist here
available from alternate sites
roughly the same and cheap

our lives imbued with commercials
fashion is your pop-up ads
porn and sex depends on taste
hetereo homo trans bi

we torrent portions of experience
you watch on memory’s screen
saturated market of viruses
tailored life consumed

following our app algorithm paths

sharpening your mind’s dull edge

melded from #bitlife glories
