Flash photography captures
the stingiest faces.
Fluorescent bulbs flicker
in tired corneas.
The dirt needs a friend.

It’s dry.
Institutional, sterile,
narcissistic and lonely.
It’s dry.
Crusty, burnt, shallow,
immediate and sporadic.
It’s dry.
Duchamp, Zappa, Einstein,
frustrated and aware.
It’s dry.

Creation takes time.
The dirt needs a friend.
