* see red edit below
this frame that used to hold such a beautiful picture of potential
crooked, sideways now
bent with aches and pains
can barely stand up
As the picture is released to fall in tatters to the floor
and can’t be picked back up
can you please pick it up for me to see once more
before we are a picture no more.
* I must apologize. I found this written in an old journal of mine and thought I’d never posted it. Only because one of you visited this post, and I went to see what I’d written there – did I discover that I had. This one is posted exactly like I’d written it in the journal. I like this one better. Funny how similar the header images ended up being.
