Secrets

Blackside of a Polaroid

Photography is intentional.
Tap to breed an impression;
a moment of aesthetic appeal
wrapped around a thought,
sudden or otherwise.

Everlasting image,
my beloved child,
rotten guttersnipe,
you are more than flesh or film.
You were a choice based in clarity.

Polaroid plastic, I made you in
time-suspended growth;
conflict given composition.
You are a secret given form,
a sample of something darker.
