New York City 1975

I think I was there. On your shoulder? In the van? At home with mom? Only unanswered questions remain.

You stopped there for a moment and saw this picture through your lens.  The same lens I found in a box on your bookshelf this Christmas. This is your view. Your eyes are watching this very moment. And though both of you no longer exist,  not long ago a parallel universe kept you both alive. I just never looked. And now this moment is all that remains.
