Photo Album

In this photo I'm staying on the big gray stone on the shore of Atlantic ocean

I'm staying exactly in the middle of a gigantic footprint of dinosaur

Left here 70 million years ago

This photo was taken by you

Remember you made about 15 photos with me on that stone

Because you said that you liked the shine in my eyes

When I talked about how dinosaurs was more like birds than lizards

How they lived in flocks, made nests and sung songs to each other

Cared for their children and vanished from the earth just when the flowers appeared

Because flowers were probably toxic to them

Yeah, you said, you never know whats under the surface of beauty

-----

Here, next picture is you

You lay on the sofa with your eyes half closed

Your hands in the air making invisible circles and stars

You smile and my kiss is still under your nose

That was that evening in winter. The one when we took so many pictures of each other

Just out of nothing to do; and we laughed a lot; and we asked

What if the earthquake comes and buries us under this building today

Can memory cards petrify?

Can petrified memory cards be read after 70 million years?

And then you said, Hey let's make a baby tonight

He may last long enough and we don't know what else to do with our lives anyway

Your hands in the air making invisible cobwebs of love

-----

And here is a picture with me again

It's blurred, it's taken on tube by one of my mates

Haven't changed that much or am I?

I don't know how you do? Just hope you alright.

I certainly am.

Still digging, still left-wing, still all is the same

Fighting my demons and sometimes having a fun

Just stopped for a moment to drop you a line

To say

You know

I'm still keeping you on my memory card

Petrified

Who knows maybe somebody'll find it

After 70 million years
