Still Life

The less you move, the more you show yourself,
Visconti said to Callas. She complied.
By presence more than deed
is something known:
the world of things
is frozen in the salt of stillness, self
preserved, as sun, and sky, and earth, and seed
that is in death a promise.
 
Nor will it escape you,
there is more presence in a photo,
picture or statue, lifelike,
extracted from a lifetime,
than any breath could shape to.
