my lens is dirty, sue me (our lenses are always dirty)



this poem is unclean
it can't help but be
it is like this with linen
and dust jackets too
and skin
it is like this with skin


i have touched this poem

  4. liz)))) it is our duty to touch everything.

    manik, it was a foggy morning. it entered me too.

    laura, i'm glad you like it. i began to work to take the dirt out of the photograph. my camera is desperately in need of a cleaning but then i realized the dirt was important, as it is always important how we touch things and change things and how things touch and change us.
