Photographs

Let's take a picture
It'll be a memory
Now let's take another
For the world to see
Just how much  fun we're having
And how happy we all are

Later then we'll have the photographs
But memories only of pretended joy
Of smiling fake smiles into the lens
The beauty around forgotten
And then we do it all over again
A different place, different people, same old story



“I've become like one of those people I hate, the sort who go to the museum and, instead of looking at the magnificent Brueghel, take a picture of it, reducing it from art to proof. It's not "Look what Brueghel did, painted this masterpiece" but "Look what I did, went to Rotterdam and stood in front of a Brueghel painting!”
