Facebook: A Pantoum

The child got into Bard.
Early admission.
I know that from Facebook.
We haven’t “defriended” one another yet.

Early admission.
And paid in full.
We haven’t “defriended” one another yet.
Though that day is coming.

And paid in full.
For the heartbreak of a child’s fickleness.
Though that day is coming.
I won’t be there to see it.

For the heartbreak of a child’s fickleness.
She’ll “like” herself into oblivion.
I won’t be there to see it.
She’s denied all possibility.

She’ll “like” herself into oblivion.
I know that from Facebook.
She’s denied all possibility.
The child got into Bard.
