In pixel prison

I looked at things
in high or low def,
in 72 or 300,
in raw exposures,
in cmyk or rgb,
in automatic levels,
in tweaked curves,
in sharpened edges,
in depths of fields,
in fake bokehs,
in fake antiquated effects,
in jpeg, tiff, psd and png,
in units and increments,
in picas, points, millimetres or inches,
that imprisoned my sight
in the four corners
of a pixel.
I looked at things from inside
and realized that the prison I am in
is where images
are defined by
somebody else's sight.
