i have a picture of bliss

19 September 2009 § 1 Comment

i have a picture of bliss
arm in arm at a waterfall
sitting
in the Ozarks somewhere,
verdant and alluring and alone together,
but it’s not actual because
the water rises around
and we’re frozen, like
cardboard-still. And anyway
water doesn’t look white like that in real life–
just when exposure is longer

so we’d have to sit perfectly
absolutely
cardboardly
still for it to come out sharp.

Impossible.
