three dimensional photograph

mannequins can’t cry

room
after room

shiny painted wax
full of empty
          soulless
                stares
   the lie of
a three
dimensional
         photographed
         substitute
         for life

still figures
still figure
ways
of fooling us
but not me

    i need life
and animation…
mannequins can’t cry
the way i do
without
you
here.
