Fixtures

Favored pictures sit in frames
Walking past them every day
A living room’s antique buffet
Moments captured void of rain

No matter what I think or say
You do seem to listen anyway
And although you can be gay
I do take pride in each parade
Favored pictures sit in frames

Years prior to the falling ash
Long before the film encased
Favored pictures sat in frames
And though the details change

Sometimes driven out of sane
Where I reflect from far away
Regardless if it seems in vain
Blue moon light is never tame
Favored pictures sit in frames


Poem is for a poetry reading, tomorrow in St Petersburg, Florida, the subject is Family.
