Alone, you often browsed this album
that always opened to a leather strap
and 'London 79';
each photograph a flint
that spit sparks and
lit so many memories --
you both smiling from
days unremarkable
and fat with time.
But now today ends,
and tonight closes on Death's thumb;
for when your dog returned,
its lead curled the question mark
your falling flat had answered.
