Remainder Of The Day

In sepia
a photograph
captured
a girl dressed in
Victorian garb
mid yawn.

It captured
blur as well
since period cameras
had long
exposures.

A thumbtack
holds the photo
to a corkboard.
Three other holes
dot the top edge
of the paper.

Written in cursive script
by a person
with excellent penmanship
is the line
Lily Powell in the parlor.
