The Photograph


Faded photograph

Nailed to the wall

is painted time


Forgotten lives live on

In forgotten time

Bound by the photograph


When the burden of memory

Becomes unbearable 

The photograph shatters

Only shreds of memory remain

    A fine meditation on the interplay between photographs, reality, and time. Time nailed to the wall. Perfect image.
