Photographic Memory

My photographic memory's out of film, I'm sad to say. Can't seem to get a picture of one thing I did today. I'm fuzzy 'round the edges about how my time was spent, So don't expect clear snapshots of my friends or where I went. My past is more in focus than the meal an hour ago, And I can sing the "Big Band" tunes, but days and months don't know. Some faces look familiar, but imagine my surprise To find out we're related!  (You sure wear a good disguise!) Alone in crowded rooms where people talk, but not with me... Can't follow conversations, so they all just let me be. It's lonely - being perfect - in this odd and unique way. I'd love to share my "albums", but most people shy away. So here I sit and contemplate where all my film has gone, And worry that my eyesight will not wait to tag along. If you find where I put it, please return it - quick - to me... Life's just a blur without my photographic memory.
