PROJECTION

Whether you’re in the frame
or taking the shot, the camera is running
Filming and being filmed,

in the dark
replaying the scenes,
imagining

another take,
editing what can be seen
or not,

there’s no use
differentiating between experience
and projection.

The film is running.
Whether you enter the frame
or stand back

everything moves along
The camera is shaky The scenes jumbled
It’s the life you are living

that holds you
here. Put the camera down
Turn off your phone

“It’s time to” someone says,
but you don’t listen
You don’t

You just keep replaying the same scenes
Varying the setting
Reshuffling the players

Until the film
runs out
sputtering its last
