Sherman Alexie Writes ‘The Facebook Sonnet’

The New Yorker recently published “The Facebook Sonnet” by Sherman Alexie. The poem follows the AB-AB/CD-CD/EF-EF/GG rhyme scheme of the Shakespearean sonnet.

Here is a couplet from the piece: “Let’s sign up, sign in, and confess / Here at the altar of loneliness.” What do you think?

In the past, Alexie has published several poetry collections including The Business of Fancydancing (1991) and Dangerous Astronomy (2005). He also wrote the illustrated young-adult title, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (2007).
