Albums & Cards

Photographs fade faster as the summers get longer,
so keep the ones you want-
those wedding bell sweet sounding chimes,

those Turkish coastal lines-
pristine, pressed and bound somewhere safe, 
file them and order them in chronological order,
sure up the shelves with extra struts.

It's been done before
and it'll be done again,
but not as well as this,
not as well as them.
