Thursday, November 19, 2009: Polaroid Vase by Jung Hwajin

Some Things Are Irreversible

Faces seared
onto a Polaroid,
looking out
from the white sill
always will.

The brocade
of scar on skin,
an embossing
of pain.

The crease
in the corner
of a page,
formed in
an instant:

Recall a moment
by these marks.
Return to them,
these asterisks
signifying the pretense
of permanence.
