Lens

By Santino Prinzi

The election campaign’s been lost in the snap of a camera. An anonymous source. One picture, retweeted, shared; one’s enough. My husband sits by my side, head banging against the table, his hands covering his face in frustration. What can I do but pretend that it’s not all that bad?

I still don’t feel guilty about sending that photo.
