Poem of the Week-Bolting Metal Instrument

Why do I keep these keys?

No clue as to what they would open

No songs in the key of life

Broken locks

Unlock my heart

Safety cures

Never keyed a car


Scratched grooves

Losing the punch


Hanging by chain

Does Ralph really care?

Or CVS or Pavilions or Rite Aid

Digging holes in blue jeans

Slipping through the cracks

Rusty silver

Congregating in my desk

Asking to be discarded

Saved by the



Safety deposit


Igniting my ignition past
