Namesake (For My Grandfather)

All of my images of you are taken from one photo

With your balding round head and your thick beige frames
I took you for granted my initial decade
Now I wonder if I have inherited you

And if you are more than a namesake
You’ve been away longer than you were here
But during your time here you made an impact
I’m pondering what of that’s mine and what is just yours
As I glue in the details of my namesake’s forty years.
