Burning Images

written by: Jim Murdoch


Again is not
the same as more.

You’ve seen it all
so what else could

there be to see?
And yet you want

to see again
just to be sure

Because you have to be sure.
Because you weren’t paying attention.
Because you forgot some tiny detail.

Because things change over time.
Because you couldn’t believe your eyes.
Because you would never be that lucky.

Because you just
want to. Okay?
