"Instagram" in Rockvale Review

"Instagram" in Rockvale Review

 Social media creates less space between past and present. I wanted to explore that idea. Rockvale Review engaged the photographer Michelle Casady to create a photograph for each poem.  Here is her note on this photograph:   Photographer’s Note:  This poem represents a ping-pong of thoughts between present and past, a struggle between what is and what was. I chose this photo because it represents a quiet place to sit alone with your thoughts (serene), reflect on your past (literal reflections), dream big dreams, and try to work your way out of a state of confusion (fog). The slightest bit of sunshine always signifies new hope, even when an Instagram search creates that twinge of discontent.
