Poetry Friday: Remember

April 28th, 2006 (10:03 pm)
sleepy

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends score music

I am a photograph
of myself, taken years ago and creased
in the corner, shoved between books
and other old papers.

- an excerpt from Remember by Kelly O'Shea

Her personal site is currently down, so I'm trying to find the full piece in her poetry memories on LJ:

Thanks, LW :)

Here's the link to the original full poem. I don't remember if I've posted a revision, but I didn't see it straight off. Probably lost in the switch between memories and tags.
