On the camera, that artful liar

Photo of the author, by her daughter, on her birthday | Diana F and Kodak tri-x

The shutter eye makes its clicking blink
in a solitary moment’s wink
so in that instant what’s recorded
is what the iris might have hoarded
in shades of purple, blue and yellow
refined, developed, now in sorry
from which some future years will borrow
