Old photos in boxes

"William Gibson's Agrippa (A Book of The Dead): poignant poem that explores the author's memories through the metaphor of photography. The moments that change us forever, where the future becomes separated from the past, he describes in terms of:
The mechanism: stamped black tin,
Leatherette over cardboard, bits of boxwood,
A lens
The shutter falls
Dividing that from this.

Photo by me:  Work trip to Cyprus many moons ago.
