Black Metal Trunk

This trunk has held my life.

It brought my family’s things from India.

It took my books to university

(the car grazing the road under the weight).

It kept my 9.5 & 16mm films

in an outhouse in Bristol

until they got digitised.

Now the films are headed for YouTube immortality

and the trunk is in the council skip.
