His POV

By L. Stewart Marsden

 

Behind the cyclopean eye
that blinks and links the moment to a future distant review of what was;
not knowing the thought or impression
except the session and time and person or persons,
places or things captured
were important;

The author of those briefest of times picked
hid behind the lens
and hardly ever stood out front,
exposed and vulnerable;
for the most part was the controller
and not the controlled;

He said, ‘Smile!’
and it was caught;
and though we search and dig
for what ought to be there,
for what should have been,
he is nowhere to be seen.
