The Worth of a picture

By L. Stewart Marsden


A thousand words with you
are worth far more than one mere picture;
the timbre of your voice;
the spark of your eyes;
the warmth from your near skin;
the smell of your cologne;
the laugh of your response . . .
all dimmed and flat on matted memory.

The photo somehow doesn’t do.
And so I ask: one thousand words more with you.
