to further the metaphor

to further the metaphor
of doors as men, there are always keys i suppose,

slung along with treasured charms
fresh or memorialized

on stainless ring or plated gold
chain swept for safe keeping

and lest we forget locks of coded combination
set and shared or otherwise kept.

oh, so too are skeletons who command
super prerogative arriving and entering;

on second thought, i'm not certain
of the merit of this line of reasoning

much less of its reliability
in purveying clear meaning.

to further the metaphor
