Does the Camera Lie

Does the camera lie

or does it tell the whole fat

ugly truth from soup to nuts

then back to soup again?

The camera tells the whole truth

and nothing but the truth 

so help us God

close your eyes and close your gates

Only neutral expressions welcome here

people becoming plastic

projecting their pain back onto the camera

me translating it back to them

Soul seeing Soul.

Does the camera lie?

No, so I won’t either

Not anymore, and not this time.

Hello, it’s me, your photographer.

I’m here to show you the truth.
