In the digital, I am beautiful.

I am 500 right swipes in 18 days.

I am a question of “is this algorithm working right?” and “oh — it is working right?” and “oh.”

I am a question of, “how can I be swipable and approachable and 691-matches-in-7-months beautiful

when I am a statement of unapproachable and invisible

and radio-silence in real life?”

Ya girl killing the afro game in Jan. 2018.

I know that Hunter and Zack would have never approached me without an app orchestrating our activity.

Would they have still ‘liked’ me if they knew about my shitty cropping skills? More at 11.
