When she handed me this photo

I thought she asked

Can you guess who this is?

So I studied the blotchy patterns.

I tried to see a face.

And I tried some more.

Unless the image was a monster

I was at a loss.

Joking, I said

Well, it’s not Jesus.

What, she said. Not who,what.

That’s when I saw who.
