Fashion Focus Artist (With A Sense Of Humor) - Poem by s./j. goldner

I was photographed once
at a coffee shop—
completely unaware;

My head cast down
absorbed in the French latté
and unflinching conversation
of my biology text.

raveled in a multi-colored
woolen scarf and
newsboy hat

a visage barely recognizable, I,
aporetic that a photographer
would find my presence

so unobtrusively
worth capturing,

yawned and he flashed.

    Reminds me of my photo taken at age 8 as I was looking out of the corner of my eyes to my friend in order to escape the painful flash - and how BAD I felt about that awful photo - NOBODY was ever captured like that - and my husband wants to know why I'm not interested in photography - there is something evil in it!
    Kind regards, Margaret.

    You have captured the beauty of that moment in the same way the photographer captured the beauty of you - very well done Sus.

    Sus,

    I love this poem. It certainly captures a moment. I can see the whole scene. It makes me smile...and want a cup of coffee. So, I'm off to the MT Mug. Be good to you...

    Simple yet it can effectively trigger an image of what you're trying to portray in your words. Good job! :) (Report)Reply
