Your photo film is less than the thickness of skin;
when movie film catches fire
and everything burns real yellow,
everafter folks will wonder
if that's what it looked like back
in the Magnificent Seventies
when everyone's backs were real wide and brown --
is that what it looked like back then?
Was the sun different then?
Or is it just the creeping oldness
of the way we keep things:
everything kept will keep getting old.
