2.139 : 9/19/05 : Metal Box

2,329 : 1 ?


Despite the absence of
keyholes or locks
the fundamental question remains
what’s inside the metal box
hinged and clasped with
a lozenge of jade
I know by whose hands it was made
I’m afraid of the box
because it might contain evil
I’m afraid the fabric of the
almighty weave will
unravel if I let the cat out
another dare beyond compare
another new year that I sat out
but it seems it belongs to me
reminds me of the me that longs to be
opening every mystery container
and the message of that dream
could not be plainer

What is the song of the day?
