In The Right Place


I see still limbs inside photographs.
Faces concrete in gesture.
Though at one point animated,
I think:
“Not for use.”

What if air
Tilted? Reflected gloss
Like a shiny photograph.

Squinting
Would be a common expression of failure.
Full eyed,
Wide,
As dimples!
A gesture of love.

Humans with smooth skin
Would be the byproducts of care.

Squinter-s,
A measurable experience,
In the length of their wrinkles.

Nostalgia,
Nothing more than a heavy sigh.
Bathed in the blushing glow
Of an exit sign.
Pretending to be a stab wound.

Mirages
Acknowledged as reality.

Our fingers flicking through shimmers.
Like angels using their halos as a Frisbee.

Inside photographs
I am a brave sadist.

High on ticking clocks.

In the air,
I am proud of the arthritis
I developed from movement.
