Fade In.
The sable picture evaporating into
A panoramic pastoral view
The flickering light travelling eternity
Like a chronic movie of our histories
In presentation of the past
Played infinitely throughout time.

With faces from the old world
Resurrected upon the screen,
Suspended in animation as ghosts
Manifest before our very eyes
Drawn by those staring back
As if affronted by observation.
