The Things I Have Captured



The things I have captured
with my mind!
There was never any hope
of keeping them—
that's a misunderstanding
one should dispense with
as early as possible.
But to get them,
to get them like others do,
or to get them when others don't
this is what it is all about,
this is what is possible—inevitable:
to gather unique perspectives of transient moments
and call them self.
