DAILY PROMPT: TABLES TURNED

Are as comfortable in front of a camera as behind one?  Being written about, as well as writing?

old time photography

I LIKE IT THAT WAY!

Under the scrutiny
Of a photographer’s lens
Or, when talked about
In printed words
Of others, I squirm
And stammer, In spite
Of, having plenty to say

As if, my image
Captured, could
Somehow, capture
My soul, nor, do
I wish, my words
To be, parroted
Back to me, as
Mocking caricatures
Of what, they were
Intended to be

I don’t relish being
The center of attention
I’m not beholden
To anyone, nor do
I desire, to be
Classified, in
Someone’s, Dewey
Decimal System
My creativity, needs
Free reign
I like it that way!
