Old Key~by Paul F. Lenzi



Old Key


Image from

brass stranger come lost
from a far ago place
somehow making its way
through descendants
of warm-blooded
fingers and palms
across thresholds
past sundowns
to find itself here
in this alien present
beyond reach of memory
sensing it still must contain
in the forge of its shape
some significant secret
a secret whose purpose
has taken on tarnished
patina of mystery
leaving to wonder if ever
its life was important
or merely just useful
