Finding a Photograph

I saw a picture today
Me in black and white
A boy three or four

Everything still potential
That slowly bled away
Over the years of my lifetime

Like the slime from a slug
Shimmering and wasted
In the light of life

Slowly drying
Leaving just a trace
Of dreams I can’t even recall

Kick in the fucking gut
