posings & misdemeanors


you are here
sitting on a park bench
& looking past the river
a huge picture frame
[having grown out of the earth]
just a few short feet away

you are here
without a camera
or pencil & paper
sitting on a park bench
[watching the river slowly rise]
a family of four & a bichon
spontaneously fitting themselves
into the picture frame

you are here
a star witness to the crime
called on to testify
about the not too distant past
[occurring on your watch]
sitting on a park bench
the river nearly at your feet
a family of four & their bichon
mysteriously erased
from the refurbished picture frame




may two thousand twenty

  1. Refurbished picture frame- very interesting. Brilliant add. It is like it tells the whole story. It’s a flash story.

  2. Great write… shared it here….
