Photograph

You smile for a picture:
see, what a photo does –
it freezes time up cold,
captures the grin on your face
to show that you’re happy.

But did anyone see what happened
before the shot was snapped?
after the camera flashed?
Does anyone know how you really feel,
what you really think in here?

You look like you belong there,
right smack in the middle.
The people around you your friends,
arms tight around each other
like y’all can’t let go.

But no you don’t fool me.
No, you don’t fool me.
