Random Poem:

A celluloid disaster

Celluloid cadavers
Reaching for the vibrant color between the frames
Reaching for unattainable pictures
Reaching for life
For this makes us human
Another snowflake in the midst of millions
Yet I try to remain diligent
Feeling for a pulse in every glorified fluttering word
To only find veins plump with filth
And as clouds float together in a swirling abyss
We become strangers, captured in a camera lens
