Green Spots Fading

Green spots fading
Then it goes off again.
The omnipresent flash
Camera-ready smile

They say stand up straight

They say move closer

They say “say cheese”
Now, posing for the hundredth time
My hands lay at my side

Unnaturally unmoving
My smile is frozen on my lips

Unnaturally unchanging
Please! Please!
Break the cycle and
Take a video next time
This bright white flash is blinding
Let the green spots fade...
I can’t just stand here all day
Let the green spots fade...
