Words from a failed skinny poem shape-shift on paper. The July full moon sheds sparks. Fireflies blaze. Dark plays surreal. Night transforms inside a pinprick camera—a light cast image flips in magic reversal. Obscured, an apparition glides. Phantasmagorical light holds attraction. Aristotle and Leonardo DaVinci were not immune. Children worldwide gather black paper, a box, a pin and make a camera where sunlight dances. Artist Abelardo Morell creates dream photos with his camera obscura.
