Cold Storage



 



Cold storage

 

 

I locked my heart

in a steel drawer

have no damn

use for it

anymore

for anything

other than

a curio

relic

museum piece

stuck away

in an old

file cabinet

what pumps

the hydraulic

fluid now

through rusty pipes

sticky gate valves

silent chambers

cold as winter

is made of

brass

all nuts and bolts

levers

pistons

and pulleys

a tinker toy

machine

in a clockwork

universe

I visit my old

flesh and blood

now and again

just to read

the secret

messages

it scrawls

inside

the walls

of its metal

tomb
