a frozen memory like any photo where not

...a frozen memory like any photo
where nothing is missing not even
and especially nothingness...
Julio Cortázar "Blow Up"
Mirror mad
he photographed reflections
sunstorms in puddles
cities in canals
double portraits framed
in sunglasses
the fat phantoms who dance
on the flanks of cars.
Nothing caught his eye
unless it bent
or glistered
over something else.
He trapped clouds in bottles
the way kids
trap grasshoppers.
Then one misty day
he was stopped
by the windshield.
Behind him
an avenue of trees
before him
the mirror of that scene.
He seemed to enter
what in fact he left..
