Snapshot
snapshot
------------------------------

is it playing?
where's your smile?
put it on, put it on, child
is it clicking?
who's behind?
take the photograph to find
is it flashing?
mesmerize
don't blink; no, don't close your eyes
is it fading?
improvise
the camera never lies

you're photogenic
in ropes and in chains
you're photogenic
in polaroid blades

where's your smile?
put it on, put it on, child

move.
but
you're
bound
by
the
corners

scream.
but
you're
just
a
picture
