One of the fondest

most important

memories of my

childhood was a


cameo pendant…

a locket…

my mother wore

choker fashion

strung on a black

velvet ribbon


This locket was only

brought out on

special occasions

it held inside a

picture of my

father on the left


her picture on

the right


Both are gone now


now that pendant

is mine


those two pictures

removed long ago

are no longer inside


How I want those

pictures in their

true places again…
