The Locked Green

Of darkest cobalt green
Barred bolted
Contents unseen
I stare

Wondering

Two small holes
Unlock treasure
Lighting the coals
Of my imagination
I move

Slowly

By seven feet, does it stand proud
Towering over the madding crowd
With a cobalt green shroud

Three feet wide
With two doors
Getting closer
I pause

Breathing

It’s guard has come
I scurry back
Peering up to see
The doors now open

Yet all inside is but dead wood
Naught to think
The flame dies
I sit in knowledge

The green doors slam.
