Stop The Reel

How so many moments
become like so many others
except for the few,
when the reel clicks and catches
till the frame burns into view
so the mind will remember.

Was it the way he looked
or the way he stuttered?
In a momentary lapse of a
continuous thought,
with words rehearsed,
when the film, it broke,
is when all such moments
are put to canon.

For a sea of faces
we travel through
for the one in constant,
“who will burn the frame,
who will stop the reel?”
