it’s all there
page after page
phantom photo album

wrapped in
simple brown paper
delivered by the
post office

cracked broken window
gaze upon pages
dusty timeworn folder
lost paper memories

my grandfather’s face
eerily stares back
with a familiar expression
* * * * * * * *

  2. Sometimes it can be disquieting when we look like one of our relatives so much. Especially when they’ve reached death’s door and we are receiving their photos in the mail. Nice job. Have a nice day.

  3. oh i love the recall in this.. very intense imagery with the face of the grandfather appearing in the cracks… i love this.

writing is everything...
