Chauncey Avenue

Can it be
Possible that a
Smile remains –
A birthmark –
After over thirty years?
This photo says so:

On these steps
Once high as mountains
We sat down
Smiling soft in black and white
Gazing up at God

Now we come
Again, full grown, to
That moment.
We are worn at the edges
But the smile endures.
