How many times were we disappointed
those days, when we shot polaroids,
when the picture, minutes later, after it
was spit out through the small slot
and we had to wait till it finished developing
while we reached out for perfection
as we considered the imperfect
When we crossed the line
with new technologies
we realised it wasn’t what
we were searching for.
Life was different and
beauty was different, too.
Perfection became imperfect
and the imperfect felt
