Poetry Monday: Hashtag Censorship

In this digital age
There’s a new kind
Of censorship – 
It always starts
With words – 
The hashtag
A symbol of 
A searchable category
Some hashtags are blocked
Others have a disclaimer
Hashtags are only words – 
And they’re telling us
What words we can
Or cannot use – 
I’m using the banned words

From the poetry collection Cats, Coffee, Catharsis.
