Simulacrum

share a photograph of yourself

choose with care and send it to me

so that I may have you frozen in time

the you, that you were, before we

 

tint it with saturated tone

accentuate with overtly bright

label it “when i sought alone”

dazzle my inquisitive sight

 

perhaps a more whimsical take

with a backdrop of bliss-ed bokeh

RAW file, watermarked – not a fake

untouched, entirely you on display

 

and if offered as muted capture

a sepia tinged daguerreotype

i’ll hold with trembling fingers

as memento

your beloved archetype

 

 

………

bokeh is the pleasing or aesthetic quality of out-of-focus blur in a photograph.
