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
soaked through with all of the blood
and tears of years of looking back.

And how your father, the bombardier,
in love with his little plane
that flew the whole of all our fears,
he took off and set you free
but not before he gave you a name
and sealed your fate, and taught you shame.

You were taught such awful lies,
(we were all 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.
