Goodnight Kodachrome


In the big yellow room

There was a camera

and a classic film

and a picture of Paul Simon jumping over the moon.


Goodnight Kodachrome

Goodnight moon

Goodnight slide show in the living room


Goodnight 25

Goodnight 64

Goodnight dynamic range eight stops more


Goodnight Dwayne’s

Goodnight flare

Goodnight little Afghan girl’s haunting stare


Goodnight mail order

Goodnight rush

And goodnight to Steve McCurry whispering “hush”


Goodnight plastic carousel

Goodnight transparencies rare

Goodnight glorious old color film… everywhere.
