Frenzy’s Flash Feature #14

15 Aug


Welcome To Frenzy’s Flash Feature!

Your fortnightly Poetry/Photo Combo with Greg Mackie

Poet, dreamer, self-confessed idiot. Addicted to chocolate and crisps, he regrets having cancelled his last two dental appointments. Attempts to write stuff.

We hope you enjoy this  ‘Frenzy’s Flash Feature’ entry.  This, sadly, will be the last of this particular feature due to ArtiPeeps’ development plans. See here. However, you can always catch up with Greg’s poetry on ArtiPeeps via his continued contributions to ‘Transformations’ our collaborative poetry project inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

My sincere thanks go to Greg for all his creative input with his feature over the past months. ArtiPeeps and I have appreciated it enormously. Thank you.

The Street Photographer

by Greg Mackie


The street photographer
misses nothing –
the last lingering looks
of nervous new lovers,
the world-weary eyes
of fleeced-out fathers,
the sardonic smiles
of monochrome mothers.
The street photographer
gently juxtaposes
and careful condradicts,
he teases the truth
with his camera ice-pick
He sees through the smiles,
sees though the disguise,
captures the essence
of our animal lies.
When his wife left him Tuesday,
her expression so bitter –
he picked up his camera,
and he took his best picture.
