@necrofille is an experiment in Poe’s Law, an internet adage which states online satire is indistinguishable from earnest extremism. Poems from this project will be posted on various social media apps under the username necrofille in order to investigate whether readers interpret them as confessionalism or satire. Hyperbolic and hypocritical, necrofille exemplifies a certain feminist subjectivity known online as the social justice warrior. Employing an SJW speaker, these poems expose the hostile rhetoric and faulty logic of online social justice. @necrofille is archived on www.necrofille.com and encompasses various genres of poetry, including free verse, narrative, prose, procedural, erasure, collage, concrete, video, and interactive. Social media readers who click through to the @necrofille website encounter necrofille’s desk, littered with personal objects. The reader is encouraged to inhabit necrofille’s physical and mental space by unlocking the iphone and filtering its content through necro’s perspective.
