Arbus Negatives

I think of all those contact sheets
in the dark room of her heart

all those souls on fire

The eyes
those facial expressions
the body languaging

revealing everything

everything previously trapped

I think how
what the Native Americans said
about a photograph stealing your soul

is true

How it’s a silent killer

leaving nothing behind
