Look Up, Czech Republic XI


People moving
Led by cameras
As if by some magnetic force.
Viewing monuments in crowds
Through a lens, on a screen
Glancing at the result:
A photograph
Then moving on


A man sets up a tripod
For a self portrait
In a mass of passing people
His face shows no joy
Is he alone
Or lonely?


A women waiting for a portrait
Dances on tiptoes
To keep warm
Or to capture
An improbable weightlessness?


Holding hands
Firing multiple times
Could it be true,
That one is sometimes enough?
