So Very Much is Left…

So very much is left unseen
Between the printed out pictures and
the many different pictures that were taken, developed, and eventually discarded for one reason
or the other

So very much is left undone
Between the carefully focusing of the camera on and framing something very specific
And, something else appearing or being shown in the picture ultimately taken for
one reason or the other

So very much is left unknown
Between the original project intensely flashing in your imagination or the burning image
increasingly brightly teasing you in your mind, and the product finally made or completed or
written for one reason or the other

So very much is left untold
As we get on with our respective exilic lives by moving from one place to another
in one country after the other for one
reason or the other.
