keeper keys

inside every box
sleeping secrets lie
a letter from a long lost love
to open with a sigh
a lock of golden sunlight hair
curled around a question why?
the fingerprint on a forbidden hint
an envelope to pry
but who owns the keeper keys
to open up and spy?

2 years ago today I was visiting the Ozark Cultural Center bathhouse in Hot Springs, Arkansas and these metal lockers grabbed my attention.
