At my best friend's photo exhibit
unknown

I recognized his frame at once.
 1
 
 
All in grey scale
 2
like my rain spun memory
 3
 
 
he was posed.
 4
She had placed him
 5
against the wall
 6
just where he pressed
 7
 
 
Me, I liked it.
 8
I liked the angle;
 9
his knees drawn up
 10
face pushed down
 11
against crossed arms.
 12
 
 
Why are you sad, photo boy?
 13
Is it because I ran away
 14
in the foggy dawn, left you
 15
sleeping on a mid-winters
 16
mourning?
 17
 
 
I traced his outline
 18
with guarded eyes,
 19
pocketed the evidence
 20
 
 
Later peeled away
 21
her label:
 22
 
 
Portrait
 23
Black and White
 24
"The Lover"
