Celluloid Souls

faded photos
tattered, faded
inlaid with dust, dirt
a blurred, discolored record.

ghosts within
whisper thoughts
of stories sketched in tintype
painting portraits of erstwhile time.

grim and stirring images
capture stark scenes of babes
adorned with dress in open casket
exposing dark and mournful struggles.
