Random Poem:

My Slides verses time

Needing over-riding fulfilment
my dependable fingers writes
"boredom can never be  my requiem".
There's no profit  in instantaneous reaction
retrospection is the commodity.
Load my slide film through camera's sprockets,
wait for perfection
analogues slow down
in my own time#
admiring the sheen of the slides,
their sheets anticipate admiration,
my perceptions metered the image
i progress with symbols for immortality.
