keyhole

somebody must have found
the little album of snaps
one print per page
photos taken that summer so long ago
flip through
past pixillated
sun-stained scenes
from an afternoon
so slender he
so young she
that beard
before they
before we
the leaf-entangled catwalk
the crooked rusty bridge
and as we close
and place it back
on a shelf
the sweetly sour aftertune
drifts
