The poem has four verses of 6 lines each, with a regular rhyme scheme of ABBCDD. And the poet possible wants the reader to see each verse seem like a single frame of a photograph.

The use of enjambment reflects the gradual revealing of the photo as it develops allowing the reader to experience the pain that the photographer is reminded of as each photo is developed.
