Metal by Jean-Paul Garnier


I have driven my key into the earth
only to find, after some hassle
that it has always been unlocked
it is human to make the key
the need for something to turn
when it’s too fast for us to notice
how long have we thought ourselves the center

keys made of gold and other precious metals
to lead us amongst the places we have made forbidden
then lock ourselves in vehicles and housing
in finance and other dry sponges of this rotting tower
when it’s god we wanted all along
for someone to tell us it’s o.k.
and hand us a key made of metal
for all metal is precious
