Alive in Pictures
By Christine Dutton

lying in the grass
lens angled,
a secretive glance
at you
lazy and uninspired
but wary
of my flash pop
as I snap, snap
the shot
catching the second
of your body
slouched across
the bench
catching a sliver
of a smile
By the view
of the weeping
flaunting willow

embracing the
shape of your

you imagine
you are alone
until I stride up
beside you
and exclaim
your beauty
with close-ups
and the shutter
sounding off
that you
have meaning


I have been previously published by A Room of Her Own, through the University of Buffalo. I currently reside in Northampton, MA.
