They Took My Picture at the Mall

They took my picture at the mall the other day
because I was standing by a storefront.
They discussed how to improve it,
took a lot of measurements,
and left with my image in their camera.

    A picture in another picture. Fragments of life: strange, sad, mysterious, jolly...depending on the angle (or/and point) of view. Somehow it reminds me a poem of Jim Morrison from The New Creatures:

    They are filming something
    in the street, in front of
    our house.

    So little in words so much for imagination. Just like in your poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
