man on film: portrait. Pentax Program Plus
Does he stare into your soul?
Long exposure from a moving car ~ Exa Ihagee
The success of moments
upon the skin.
The pain of swatting flies
or stabbing a pencil into
Trip over the outline
left on the ground.
You mark the soured earth
with your spit words
and poor taste.
Scratch the dirt away from the stone
Rub the surface to search for letters
the ground will etch the truth
into the surface.
The ground will find its way
through the air above.
Those normal things that move,
that go or stay
remain in their decay.
Scratch the dirt away and look for the hints
Memory created you from a pile of garbage
a pile of other peoples’ actions
or so it seems.
Swing your bare feet to the floor.
Try to put your shirt on right side out.
