Keyhole

The keyhole and door have long stood in
For the mystery of another’s mind:
Closed, locked, visible with limitations.

Most doors are manufactured without
Locks, or with the push-and-twist locks
Built right in to their knobs, gold thimbles

That grip a mechanism inside the frame.
Think of the scenes unleashed onscreen
Or on the page, thanks to a key placed into

A keyhole, a tiny metal doorway. Metal
Upon notched metal, and the door swings
Into a room, a portion of the world yet unseen.
