Gone to the Angels

by Victoria Twomey

in the drawer
so many pictures of ghosts
their heads and bodies
crowding together
to fit into the frame
I can hear their voices
painting the room with life
hear the camera click
see the all too brief
white flash of light
illuminating their skin
every one of them
now gone to the angels
striking a pose elsewhere
stars lighting up their eyes
