Present: not a selfie

Empty rocking chair by a window
The photographer is present in the photo, and so are you

I am present
in this photo
of an empty chair

I am still
steady and enduring
not rocking

I am the eye
that sees
an oddness, a beauty

and presents it
in a frame
to you

now you
are present
