Thanks to Mark Kerstetter for the correction

Can you reveal you
through popular images or
does your voice fade
like copies of copies
Just because you start
with recognizable words
and regress doesn't mean
you're not a tribute artist

I don't mind
if you don't have
a pedigree
as long as your
unique voice
speaks to me

Can you connect
the opposites
and show me how
we are one
while allowing me
a new way to see
something as mundane
as the sun

Don't show me your perfections
show me your blemishes
its not what the images can do for you
its what you can do for the images
