Tell Us What’s Left for These Humans

Eighteen human faces show
In the ten best photos

Of the week, according
To the BBC. Think.

Could a novelist trace
The future of each face—

These Chinese men surfing,
This Englishman hedging,

The two women boxing,
The leader resigning,

The candidate posing,
The war widow grieving,

The students partying,
The man caught in flooding,

The man caught protesting—
Scottish, Venezuelan,

Nigerian, unknown,
Ukrainian, and

Xakriaban? Trace them
All, day out and day in,

Right from the moments when
Their pictures were taken,

These lives drawn through a lens,
Then left to be human.
