camera obscura

clear view
skewed
inverted
introverted
reflected
far off
from afar
twisted mind
converts reality
truth is
a black wall
a pinhole
admitting light
admitting guilt
in a dark room
I cannot leave

*********

Inspired by the above photo, which appeared in New Scientist a couple of weeks ago. The picture is by Abelardo Morell and shows New York's Central Park, upside down, as revealed by a camera obscura.
