    dotsThe Camera Played Guess Whodots

    The camera played guess who--
    photos materialized that we never took.
    Blurred, beautiful faces haunted us
    people we almost knew--
    an eye like Aunt Minnie's,
    your best friend's chin
    oddly juxtaposed.
    People whose parts weren't their own
    pictured in places we'd never seen
    even in the movies,
    but we liked those photos best
    and got disappointed
    when the snapshots
    were of this world.
    We preferred those
    from the dreamworld afterlife.

    The times when the camera flipped around and took the picture of yoru finger and of Kim with her otngue out and Kelsey oddly disappeared...or my mom and I sharing the camera and took a triple-exposed picture - Kim, flexing her muscles covered up by layers of flowers - she is still weak...it brings out more than you thought there was...as does this poem...

      wow this is amazing... im pretty tired as i read this and now its messing with my head and i can see the photo's you are talking about 'oddly juxtaposed'... reallife is almost always disappointing...

    I love how you compared those strange pictures to the dreams of the afterlife. Most people quickly look through, and throw out those pics, cussing because they had to spend a bit of money on them.

      I know you love those minimalist writes, and they are your forte---but when you indulge your whim for something longer, it certainly turns out well. I think it's because you are so comfortable with encapsulating moments and thought, and you have such exquisite vivid imagery and word us.

    Looking at photos that are doubly exposed--like looking through squinty-eyes in the sun or the rain---or through colored glass, a fun house mirror--a prism---anything that distorts reality is always eerily fascinating--and vastly more interesting than the known reality. Thanks, this is a gem, Silver

      okay you're in definetly love or you're just such a damn good poet to get that all out of your imagination. I can't do that. I like photography very much. I can sit there looking at beautiful photos (for example by Anton Corbijn) for hours. I always find a new detail. that's why I like your little poem so much. and for me it's also a cute little descripition of love again.
