RULE OF THIRDS
(5/13/17)

some
do not see
the world
proportioned
in symmetry

we sense
reality
aslant

existence
tilted
in our
direction

seeing ourselves
as a floating
power point
dominating
a distorted
background

unable
to imagine
a photograph
without
our image

so lost
in self portrait
that we
fade
to silhouette

never realizing
that our
perspective
has been wrong
all along

that our frame
of reference
is in need
of a straighening
hand

that others
reflect light
as well
