Pictures are not movies

[2005] Galeria Filomena Soares, Lisboa

PICTURES ARE NOT MOVIES

 

When I look at your picture

It makes me sad

just looking at your picture wont make glad

 

When I look at your picture

It looks like you

The hair is brown

The eyes are blue

 

When I look at your picture

Your eyes don’t see

When I look at your picture

It looks through me

 

Everyone knows pictures are not movies

Where clouds are still

And trees won’t grow

Where nothing’s fast

Not even slow

What looks like now is long ago
