Milkshakes at the ice-cream parlor,
Remnants in a metal cup,
Served alongside the frilly glass.
With coffee at my desk,
And all other matters set aside. Truth and falsehood
In my innocent days,
Starkly setting each other off and apart. A plate of sandwich cookies–
Pulling them apart,
Scraping the inside off with my teeth. Movies from the 1930’s–
Greta, Cary, Katharine, Randolph, Clark…
Adding some gray to test the Code. Image on a small rectangle,
Up way past bedtime on school nights,
Enchanting, beguiling…so distant now. I cherish black and white.
