image of two poets

[two men] posing for the camera
you don’t have to know the subjects
individuals, separate but together

each photograph, a conjunction of profiles
their very squareness Beat geometry
Ginsberg, Orlovsky at right angles
to one another

on a trip to India, informal, affectionate
casually taken images
lengthy captions written on each print

aware of the lens, what it can do
the intensity of a gaze, length of the shadows
nest-like appearance of his own beard
sage, sexy, dapper, dandy…
