@MarkDanowsky 's "Underwater Photography" #poemaday #NationalPoetryMonth

Underwater Photography

I don’t really know what I’m looking at
or why I am looking at it
but I go on looking
longer than expected
It’s not the vivid colors
foreign tissues
glowing geometric abstractions
like organs
seen through translucent sheens
we shouldn’t be able to see

—it’s light
we share with those
who have none

Mark Danowsky’s poetry has appeared in Cordite, Grey Sparrow, Mobius, Right Hand Pointing, Shot Glass Journal, Third Wednesday and elsewhere. Mark is originally from the Philadelphia area, but currently resides in North-Central West Virginia. He works for a private detective agency and is Managing Editor for the Schuylkill Valley Journal.
