JPEGs

They fill

the silvery

surfaces of

computer disks,

the hidden

resources

of external

drives, cloud-tops

from long flights,

footprints in snow,

drifting gold

leaves, glinting

lakes, blossoms

in spring orchards,

smiling friends,

in universal jpeg.

Like Midas, I run

them through

my fingers,

longing to

hold on.
