Colin

i didn’t know him
then
the young man
dashing;
in uniform
waves at his temples
a glint in his eye
popular; you could tell
man about town
or should’ve been
anyhow
no, those were just
the pictures
a young girl
enjoyed-
the old man
shuffling; slow
happy
to show
more knick knacks;
noise
a living museum
just about;
wistful time capsule
of the boy
she’d never know
