- Roland Barthes' thoughts on photography {Camera Lucida} paired with Donnie Darko's discovery of the effluence of Time {Donnie Darko, Directed by Richard Kelly}

From a real body, which was there, proceed radiations which ultimately touch me, who am here; the duration of the transmission is insignificant; the photograph of the missing being, as Sontag says, will touch me like the delayed rays of a star.

early September

standing looking at a photograph

that you do not remember

being taken

you look out of breath

and me like I am faking

as a matter of fact

I don't recall this photo being taken

you don't even actually exist so I just started shaking

does not exist, take an exit "
