Bouquet of Keys

According to Wikipedia, “the pin tumbler lock is a lock mechanism that uses pins of varying lengths to prevent the lock from opening without the correct key.”

If there are pins that keep you locked
then I wish for you to find the right key.
For me, these poems
Christmas cards, with pictures of smiling babies
who look like their moms
holiday lights
sunlight when you can find it
good music while you wash dishes
greenhouses full of lush leaves
thick novels because writers know sometimes we need a long story to come back to
dark chocolate
soft hand-knit scarves
happy work in the world–
Whatever keys will unlock your joy
picture me at your door
appropriately masked and distanced
holding a big bouquet of the keys you need
Picture me at your door
and I’ll picture you at mine.
