Zoom Lens

Watching from the shadows, the heart wears dark

Glasses, a trenchcoat, carries a camera optimized

For distance and details. Curiosity kills cats

Regularly, it seems, but hearts don’t learn. They long

To know, to be prepared, to study the pictures–

Foreground, background, shadow on top of shadow.


Photo+graphein: Greek, to draw with light. We think

That light reveals, unveils, shows us an image

We can recognized. We know that the eyes

Rely on light to differentiate what (and who)

We should walk toward or away from. The heart

More private than the eye, remains in shadows.
