because it’s there

the same reason
people climb mountains
applies to why
i find myself
flipping through
endless pages
on the internet

sure, it would be nice
to climb mountains

but i do think fondly
of those many
late-night hours
i spent chatting
rather than
quietly
silently
scrolling
swiping
“like”-ing
lurking.
