A poem for the gif

Oh gif

Oh gif, how you swift -ly fill the hole between image and video

Oh gif, how you play straight away no need to press go

Oh gif, what a gift how you lift me in slow mo

Oh gif, you're a tonic, a potion! so good for stop motion

Oh gif, you exist outside of time. you're retro and ancient, in the same moment (like a monospace font)
