The Bohemian Experiment

The Photo

Posted by beckert10 on February 24, 2010

Hidden away in an antique shop
among old milk bottles and rocking chairs
I find a tin type photo
of a handsome, dapper man
with a mustache and cigar.
His eyes mock me,
say that
someday, I too will be just
an old photo
surrounded by
lunch pails and washboards.
