Anatomy of a House pt. 5

The Skeleton Key

Tight in your grip
Is the skeleton key
That arrived with a letter
Indian ink on a parchment page
Sealed with wax from an erstwhile age
A legacy written in elegant hand
Granting the title of dwelling and land
To the one who inhabits
The house for a night
Put the key in the lock
And turn to the right


  1. I can't wait to see what happens when the key turns in the lock.Scary but awesome poem.

  2. Hello.
    Just awesome! I'm impressed that you can say so much in so little. Loving this series. Thanks for sharing.
