The Words Are Written Though Not Yet Said

"Clusters of succulent apricot-
Like fruits on a female gingko in
Autumn." Caption worth commendation,

As captions are, in the main, verb-less
Wonders of mathematical proof
That a picture still wants a few words.

Gauze-curtained bed under the plum tree
Where my love and I tried to forget
Barking dogs on Valentine's evening.

Red-painted bench waiting to be moved
To the front of a tan stucco house
With a flat roof that leaks when it rains.

Obituary of a working
Man's poet, face-up on the red bench
With a photograph and a caption.
