Still

by March 29, 2012 0 comments

Fulgent eyes reflecting waters
in allegory
out of reach
perchance
a pool
foamed and formed
from waters
flowing forth and falling
for
even the still
photos
do reveal
her eyes
to be
zoetically
if poetically
full of life
and movement
and motive
that seems to seek
a love beyond
the still and stagnant
that surrounds her
that gives her
annoyance
and cause
to move
to care
to love
to scream
out and aloud
through the thick
of the stillness
from the exanimate
impotent
languorous
and oft
insufferable world
in photographs
Her eyes
kindle a fire
that sets itself
burning and wild upon
indifference
and
the icy still
dullness of
photo-shopped backdrops
and studio niceties
and
because
this fire
burns constant
and
if it destroys
so does it create
from the ashes of
this execrable world
she rises
she is fearless
and dangerous
and lovely
and she knows it

editors note:

A look to make any lover sing or squirm. Best to be songworthy in her gaze. – mh
