Upon Leaving You (1215AM, 01/09/09)

The extent of our love
is a scrapbook
dedicated
to that which

gathering dust upon
the shelf
safely secreted away
where the grandkids
can’t find it
because you’re ashamed
to show them.

Washed up, washed out
sepia tones
and black
and white

archival safe paper
keeping
picture perfect postcards
pristine, yet
letting the acid eat away
memories of the heart

or the thought
of what they were.
