Laura Burgher, Necessitated Imaginings of Marjorie

the focus on her hands

her eyes drawn to

the wrinkled skin

of the hands

resting

 

smoke curling

in the kitchen

 

has he left yet?

 

the moment when

through sepia toned

focus blurred

unfocused

the eyes down

 

pots clanking

a whistle in the distance

the edges of the scene

encroach upon

 

she is alone

 

who is she

waiting for

is she at all

maybe he

 

is there

in front of her

behind the lens

and the children

 

insistent

 

insistence

within

the image

 

it is only

within my

frame of

vision

 

do I see

anything

at all

 

to know

a closeness

the hands

remember

the hands

 

the fabric

draped

across

her

a shawl

 

I am my

hands gaze

drawn to each

other

a pose

 

there is a confusion

in forced

intimacy
