AGFA SILETTE (type - 1) c1953

Agfa made a zillion Silettes between '53 and '69.

January rain is melting the snow

and turning it into fog.

I'm watching the old man that lives down the street

walking his three-legged dog.

Nothing has edges, all detail is lost

everything’s rounded and grey.

The things I thought I saw yesterday

apparently have all gone away.

Sounds are short-lived, as though in a dream,

even the birds have gone still.

The sounds of the world, out there in the gloom,

are not making it up my hill.

I like days of fog, I wish there were more,

I like this dim, quiet place.

Nothing but time and moving of light

And coolness touching my face.
