Not So Fast

"Dada Aajooba and Mama," 2013, by Priya Kambli

Not So Fast

The verb in photography is take
to take a picture

is to seize and grip
the conspiracy between light and this
specific place and bones within a face
rearranging themselves so they convey

I say into the ear of the second
that wants to be gone
Not so fast

What I am allowed to retain
is a baby bird version of satisfaction
