in black and white

in black and white
grainy images
wonder at our progress
landing on the moon
in black and white
in wonder, in amazement
woken from our slumber
to watch men walk on the moon

adding the third stanza

in black and white
watching the July 16 launch
and the July 20, 1969
Apollo 11
moon walk on our family’s
black and white TV.
I was 9 years old then.
We didn’t get a color TV
until 1976, when we moved.
