NaPoWriMo2017 - NECROHISTRIOPHILIA - GloPoWriMo2017 - Day 28



Necrohistriophilia

A fire captured on nitrate
dancing around a code of conduct
on pre-dawn stock
he added the color
painting by performance

He burns through time
burns through death
demanding attention
commanding respect
igniting desire
warming life

Heartbeats
professional and personal
echo and living
touching yet never touched
held together by present tense

Sentient in the moment
obsesses
sentient on the film
reeling
every caught breath
every clenched word
every captured touch
to be run
over
and over
again

till present tense
becomes past

and the only thing left
is transferred to digital
