Catch Some Wide Eye

perfectionist


he set the contrast of tone
got the three-point lighting system
bunch of bananas on table
set the tripod here
no, there
daylight, switch lens
not enough color
too many lines
nighttime
he adds apples
feverishly working
but not one flash
the wrong textures
the wrong patterns
the wrong lens
daylight, switch lens
he charges the battery
eats half a pear
flies swirl around
contrast, beautiful motion
lazy, crazed circles
bananas brown
nighttime
the final flash

but who will tell him
he’s out of film?
