Untitled Part 1 by Katelyn McBride

A picture is worth a thousand words
And the words that come off this picture
Are not telling the right story
Picture day smile
Is a tilted head
A toothless goofy grin
An outfit you planned all week
And taking retakes because it wasn’t good enough
Instagram couple
Is a head tilted into a kiss
A toothless, lust less look in your eyes
An outfit that just wasn’t right
But you work around it, and take fifty pictures
Because their hand in yours wasn’t good enough
Stop tweeting about me, and just be
Stop snapping and start wrapping
The presents of the photo less
Status less Christmas,
because then, if we make it, it might be real
