Necklace of lights

Necklace of lights (i)

All of these pictures we’ve been taking of each other

We make them look older than they naturally do

All of these pictures coworkers lovers and brothers

Mini-mementos so we don’t forget me and you

Are we supposed to revisit them later on in this life

or post and then doublecheck so we know that it was real

Are we supposed to bone up in case of a pop quiz

Mini-mementos in case we need to look and feel

As we compose our shots and press on our shutters

Ossify everything opposite our eyes for all time

Think of the last time you’ll do it and try not to shudder

Your documentation convicts you of a high crime
