365 Poems: Two of these things don't belong together

Day 207

What do the best poems have in common? Tension. When you put things together that don't necessarily belong together, it creates tension -- in words, or in pictures. It's why I love song mash-ups, and screwy love stories between people who shouldn't love each other, and crazy food combos like cantelope-basil ice cream.

So when I found this video about a photographer who takes pictures of strangers posing together, I knew I had to keep it. Because it's all kind of awkward, and that makes it all kinds of good.
