Peter had slides in crayola orange boxes.
He’d wanted them scanned for years.
This summer he sent them to Scan Cafe,
to another unnamed country the scanners are in frequent
contact with him yesterday they sent him rough scans and
we looked at ourselves when we were thin when we were
young thirty years is a long time even though it isn’t
there we all were at our wedding
his father laughing with my mother people we hadn’t
seen in years my old boss Robert Hoyt dancing with Jean Boudin
there we all were Wendy Kaminer in a fluffy
sweater flirting with a British sound editor my mother
laughing with her sister Ruthie we were there forever in those
funny pictures taken by my friend Doug Magee who thought
Pamela Nelson was good looking so she plays a big part
in our wedding photos Pamela Nelson in her red dress
smiling forever at Doug Magee.
