Terence G. Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
Picture Images In The Mind
to get the picture
of him in her mind
without breath bones
but more sanitized
than work sweat
bad hair days
photos are needed images
file reference points
to attach character traits
to as we treasure store memories
experiences expectations gained
photos without expressions
visible soulful revealing eyes
do not show various things
we mind vision see or do
does not reflect thought life interests
never spoken never unveiled
photos are not always realistic
do you understand what I mean?
perhaps neither are yours?
photos 'just a superficial film
over the entire internal self'
perhaps poses for friends?
what is your agenda?
what is hidden?
what is revealed?
