[Daniel Postlethwaite provides today’s inspiration]

Photographs display on white trifold stands around the stiff body

Two black and white girls play with pots and pans on a kitchen floor
A teenaged girl smiles in faded color as twisted paper streamers come together above her head
She holds a smiling baby, we squint in the bright spring sun
In the front seat of a skiff, the sun behind her as she waves, my father’s hand at the motor

She isn’t looking into the camera, in any of them
But each displays her soul
