tonight: photographer


in the moment, eyes see at 2.8
what is right in front, going on
and then you are standing on chairs
and there you are wrist sore
from the camera clicking all day long


days later, files, endless files
of stories of what was going on right then
and then you are staring at images
and there you are taken back
towards that place you were, seeing


seeing that back there
2.8 was too shallow a depth of field
for staring at those images a world of perspective
broadens and shapes
and tears come and they are hope


years later everything there
is memory and story: love and sadness
and then you see visual prayers
and there you are thankful
this is your story: seeing, showing, telling
