You were born a photograph,
a vignette of a train-of-thought,
in silver nitrate and old stop-bath,
to your poor mother, her paper heart

that flew the whole of all our fears,
he took off and set you free

and sealed your fate, and taught you shame.

You were taught such awful lies,

you grew up in kodachrome
and coloured by the things that you were
and held in place by what you are.
