Old photographs, family stories showing fashions and trends back through a family history. Going on until just the name remains and eventually not even the picture, just records of names, jobs, and locations.
Black and White
Young faces, children from before we came to be
who we are, made old by a two-inch square
of black and white paper.
Faces that stare back at you from places
even memories don’t even go. A long line
forwards and back that reaches to just become
names listed and lost in the county and a trade.
