The Internet is a Verb
More than just a collection of websites,
It is a digital manifestation of who we are,
Our greatest contributions
And our darkest depravity.
To be online is to dance with others
Appreciating the moves of another
And making moves of our own too,
Using it as a tool for our own purposes
While it changes us as we engage with it.
The Internet is a verb
We have made it what it is
By our participation in it,
Mindlessly or otherwise.
We have made it
Simultaneously the most unsafe space on the planet
And a glorious portal to the thriving of
Far from being benign
The Internet is a verb,
A sprawling, ever evolving expression
Of who we are.
