Richard Schnap - Exposure

The Indians believed
That to take their photos
Was really a way
To capture their souls

I think of this when
My driver’s license renews
As I face the camera
Like an arrested man

For over the years
Each one seems to grow
More out of focus
And a little more grey

As if I am fading
To someday confront
A lens that reveals
The face of a ghost

Richard Schnap is a poet, songwriter and collagist living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His poems have most recently appeared locally, nationally and overseas in a variety of print and online publications.
