For Cathy, On The Death Of Your Grandfather

Thoughts frozen mid-phrase,
while happy moods turn sad.
Frozen like still-photographs of traffic signals,
all caught off, all caught dark.
A split second preserved,
like memories of people now ageless,
as we rush to catch them.
We will all be one age,
when our atoms are freed,
to be other things.
