Photos Of The Web

Photos used to capture

A time

A place

Not alter one


With the power of the internet

The power of computers

Someone’s photo is nothing more

Than an altered reality

An elusion

A mirage

Water only drinkable to the ones that are fooled

With the click of a button

All imperfections are removed





Hair color

The scars of life are gone

Leaving folks looking a lot like

Some of those TV evangelists in the 1980s

Faces plastered with makeup

Filtering what the camera would see

Plastic surgery


All done with the click of a button

So crisp

So perfect

No flaws

No truth 

This poem is from my book : Petals Falling
