How Photographs are like Highlighters

A picture is like a highlighter.

It’s our way of saying

“If you don’t want to fail life

You will remember this moment.”

But in a world of camera phones

And selfie-sticks

We have forgotten how to study for the test.

Instead of highlighting the key concepts

And defining terms of our lives

We line the whole page fluorescent,

until we are overrun by pictures of moments

That were never meant to be remembered.
