Upon Looking Through "A Pictorial History of the Silent Screen"

Bessie Barriscale.

I've never seen any of your pictures...
most have crumbled into
century-old dust
but when I turned the page
you had the most haunting eyes --
dark watery beacons
deep enough to swim in,

untouched, undiminished by time.
