(a poem for a gadget. the camera is implied, not visibly present in my poem)

The play of light and shadow

hides fault lines

and seeks to delude

Focussing and zooming

craftily make the backdrop

pale away. the angle and

the perspective are tricks

artificers use to lure the senses

Cuckoo's eggs in crows' nests

Art designs illusions, conjures

to deceive, magics

wizards the banal to look romantic

Photography is an art, poetry too

They do it exceptionally well

A photo is a poem which rhymes

metres, line breaks truth into lies

A poem which seduces the most apathetic reader

willing suspension of disbelief

into accepting secrets of my heart

which you threw into the bin yesterday.
