Polaroid re-touch


Concealed pieces of silver betrayed
By salted entanglements,
Latent halides in amber re-integrated,
Fractions condensed through light’s limbec,
Recast as memory made tangible.

A past just lost eased back
Before our breathless gaze,
Re-entering over several steady beats,
A moving drama gradually resolved,
The sensuous rendering of stillness from life.

Broad based old white encapsulations,
Air wafted hand held pleasures,
Frames to form icons for digital imaginations,
Land’s analogue instant development,
More and less than either true or false.
