The Norman Rockwell Painting

The desire to live the perfect life

The white picket fence

The wraparound porch

The 2.3 children

With perfect teeth

Excelling in athletics

And academics

The faithful and doting spouse


You know what I mean

You look at those pictures

And you buy into the romanticized life

And wonder why you don’t have it


As a photographer

I feel an obligation

To the rest of the human race

To clue you in on a well kept secret

Life in pictures

Is staged
