This is not the age of truth.
This is the age of a digital mirror
that so many people are sitting in front of everyday.

And what happens is the computer teaches you
that there is something wrong with you.

And so this thing that’s so you, you press that button, you dream yourself into a new person…

you don’t like the way your face looks?

You turn on a filter on the camera
You can just click a button and go into the light and shadow…

And you can downplay that part of your face that you never loved
because you sleep on it and it’s weird

but that’s the thing your mother kisses when you see her

Ryan Adams (On World Cafe, 2014)
