The Picture People – Written Saturday 5th November 1994 (Aged 19)

The Picture People

the picture people are alive and well
they live in the photograph
memories hanging on the wall
memories destined to last
the past, captured forever
yesterday, now, and tomorrow
all together
the picture people will not run away
they live for today
they have cats and dogs –
and all manner of things
some captured from a very old box
some are a modern photograph
capturing the mood and feeling
as well as the past
the picture people, they will always last

James Garratt – Saturday 5th November 1994
