Sunday Scribblings: Keys


Pushed to the back of kitchen drawers, abandoned to empty purpose, are the keys to missing locks.

Perhaps in a stranger’s kitchen a wide-eyed youth discovers a cache' of shiny locks,

And stalking the world, liberated from myth, the mischief of the gods to which keys remain the signifier.

Keys and locks are all about mystery and mischief; and kitchen drawers are just the place where everything gets all mixed up.

Yes, I rather thought so too!

I like Anno's comment almost as much as I liked your story..they go together well :)

Like the phrase "empty purpose"

A koan-like piece of flash fiction. Nicely done!

I loved this. Every where I lived, there was a kitchen drawer like that. And whose keys were they? And to what?

We'll never know...

Interesting... makes me wonder just what's going on in my own kitchen drawers when I'm not around to keep an eye on them.
