Lock


ubiquitous
but unseen
unless you're kept in or out

so mundane it's something you can't pick

such a simple expression of how we live

sure...why not ( the song, i mean)

the shape and word interplay are quite compelling. it's one of those poems that gives over more on each read... those things you give.

great to see this lovely juxtapose of wildness and precision...

Lovely. This is my second favorite after 'Ketchup'. Even it is better than that because of its mystical and profound message.

I also start learning this..Its a different art..
