Picture Images In The Mind - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

she wanted
to get the picture
of him in her mind

not realistic
without breath bones

but more sanitized
than work sweat
bad hair days

photos are needed images
file reference points
to attach character traits

interactive communications
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?

    We discussed photographs, this was the original inspiration point for the above poem, the quoted line is your comment. Yes full poem pending. Still searching out quiet spaces and time to think and write here and the management cutting the wifi early does not help, poets write and post late; but apparently poetry has an enemy here.
