The Photos of Summer: Day Twenty Two
July 13, 2012
I remember cutting out their faces from photographs. They were both under two and in diapers and I was heavy pregnant with my third son. This was a cheap locket and it broke not that long after I bought it. I had put it aside, meaning to replace it soon. But time has a way of passing. I haven’t thought about it much in the past sixteen years.
But last week while decluttering I came
across the locket and opened it. There, in the palm of my hand, were the baby faces of my two oldest sons staring back at me.
Faces I only recognize in my memories.
