Photograph of Ballet Flats

I press it

The worn pink

Between my fingers

Feeling the soft ribbons

Extend out

.

Looking at it

With the backdrop

Of endless blue

It seems far

Yet near

.

I stick my hand

Against the photo

To touch it

And instead

Feeling the slick smoothness

With my fingers

.

A mark is left

And now

The magic is broken

It is just a photo

Of ballet flats

With finger marks
