Tourist Crowd

between us and a
beautiful old  home
a crowd appears,

as if trying to get
into the picture
i want to make.

the crowding seems
to be intensifying,
so i give up
and take the shot.


something inside me
wants to know,
did someone decide
how it should look,

even before they built?

or maybe they wanted
the dooway to look
like someone else's.

i'm guessing that it
does not matter to me 
at this late date.



if i could, i would not
change a thing,
except the crowd.

they could have 
moved out of my
photograph.


i have to wonder 
how many people
have me in a photo,
because i didn't 
move out of the way.
