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

yet, 

 

it paradoxically burdens us with its weight 

a heavy sigh

that does not leave our chest
