There is a photograph
By Atget, say, or Evelyn Hofer
Or perhaps Bourke-White
Of a mournful room in
Over towards the left
Is a mirror. This is a famous picture
So you come across it often.
Lately, the mirror has begun
Showing your reflection.
Also, a small cat from a tintype
Henry Dixon made in 1881
Has started to push open
The door of an old cupboard.
