April 1, 2014 So I shot this man during my #24hourproject series last week but found it too naked of an image to just throw up irresponsibly. But his eyes stalked me, like the way it was conceived, I would see his eyes staring back at me in the mirror, so I sat down and wrote these words. "The Silent Shout" (Unfinished, Unedited) And in his eyes He held his tongue, A life anchored By a millstone. And the swollen silence That is his own Dangles around his neck Like a uniform. I stood by the wall like a fellow soldier, With my tarnished medals armed with a camera, Maybe as a shield I raise my lens To capture his truth as he travelled to the end. But in his eyes I wear his questions, Like, ugly thoughts, His face, my weapon. Staggering forward I face this second class entity And I clicked my shutter To unravel the coil That defines his mortality. I listened to his eyes Avoiding each blink His open pupils Whispered back at me We are in sync. Will I leave him leaning Against a reflecting wall Or free him mysteriously From an invisible call. But the reflection in his eyes The only one I see, Are the waning hearts Of all who shamelessly flee. #whenlivingisaprotest #ruddypoem
