This one is dedicated to my favorite photographer, Sue Conwell!
Photographs bubble up, overflow,
scratching away at the thoughts
stuck to the walls of my mind.
Cool memories wash over my feet
as I dance through the polaroids.
For old time's sake,
I throw in a Penny for my thoughts
and wish this nostalgia was in the past.
A shutter comes at the thought
of stopping my fingers over the glossy and matte
because cheese never made us smile
like dancing under the stars did.
It was never hard to focus
on your photogenic smile,
but these still-lifes sit in a shoebox;
a pipe-dream forgotten;
a reality never captured by lens.
