Digital photos do not fade

the way old polaroids did

their edges do not curl 


Images of a departed friend that you saved 

remain sharp,  do not become grey

instead it is our memory that loses focus 


Still we call death 

a loss  


the removal of a life from our life



it paradoxically burdens us with its weight 

a heavy sigh

that does not leave our chest
