Plethora of poetry, pinches of essay, dash of memoir.

Great imagery in that first stanza!
Excellent title, Jerry. You mix artistic media very well through your lines for great emphasis. "the future days whereyour beauty is suckedinto your soul whereit is destined to rest"I especially like how you depict the above transformation.
nice simile with the heart beat and the shutter of the camera...played this one very well...
Very very good stuff, Jerry--the lines adam selected to repeat are a standout, but the whole poem is full of insight, clarity and tenderness and seem to underline our fragility, our temporary nature as humans.
Do you know, reading yuor last word, I realy wish it said the 'stutters' that I read it as the first time around! I enjoyed the concise, non-frilly way you wrote this poem.
The last two lines, so anatomical and raw, really like the way you depicted the flash second as hours, as a pose. Immortalised photograph, everything changes from there. Nice write Jerry
I like how you used the mechanical aspectsof the camera to interpret and then amplify the picture. Good poem, Jerry.
I like to imagine my soul collecting beauty over the years...
Jerry of all the takes on the prompt I have read I think this to be the most forthright and honestly contextual with time taken into account.
So, you made a little time to stop by. You are welcome any time...speak freely.
