They Took My Picture At The Mall - Poem by Larry Hussey

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
