    (from "Keys To The House")

    from my left hip pocket chain
    they dangle & swing on a silver ring,
    that way I can hear them jangling
    feel them bouncing to the
    rhythm of my stride
    slapping my backside

    **************

    and whenever I am unsure
    of whether
    I’ve said a word in haste,
    or moved in a wrong direction
    or acted in poor taste
    or gave up too much affection

    I finger 7 keys, their number
    mentally taking account ~
    their measure, individual
    each weight, different
    in substance & amount

    and they comprise & represent
    each component
    part of me
    & possess the power to
    unlock/reveal the
    very heart of me
